In Santa Fe, New Mexico, Clint meets a beautiful artist, who asks if she can paint his portrait. He agrees, and they begin to work together, but no sex occurs between the two. However, the woman’s husband—a prominent lawyer and would-be politician, who is also an abusive husband—doesn’t believe this. When he is found dead, murdered, in his wife’s studio, everyone in town assumes Clint Adams did it. It falls to the Gunsmith to prove otherwise.
