However the Indians decide it's time to attack and it's up to a lone cavalry officer to protect them. He disobeys orders and stays to help them. He teaches the women how to defend themselves and fight back with army training.

As he spends more time with the women he finds it harder to push them away and remain distant. A few of the women make passes at him but his main priority is to protect them.

When the Indians attack will they be ready? Will the women melt the militant officer?
