Two old hermits who live in the Nevada desert are confronted by a sheriff who asks them to come back to town. They say they will return to town if the can't get a dead rosebush to grow. Later a stranger arrives. He demands to be taken to Reno. The stranger starts a fight with one of the hermits and is killed in the ensuing struggle. The sheriff later arrives looking for the murderer. The hermits show him the rose bush which has began to blossom. The sheriff leaves and the hermits reveal that the bush is probably blooming because they buried the body beneath it. (TV.com)
