Jerry Black is a Nevada sheriff who believes the wrong man has been arrested for the murders of three young girls, all of whom share the same physical traits. The night he retires, Jerry promises the mother of one of the victims that he will find her daughter's murderer and bring him to justice. Buying a gas station in the mountains gives Jerry a chance to continue searching for a tall man known as the wizard, the man he thinks is the real murderer. Toy porcupines the man gives as gifts leave clues to his whereabouts. As he searches, Jerry befriends a woman who's daughter fits the profile of the other victims and is trying to escape her abusive husband. Believing he has finally located his suspect, Jerry sets up a stakeout at a nearby picnic area, but it only leads to a final confrontation he does not understand.
