Director Tom Terriss took his cast and crew to Cuba and Spain to give this romantic drama authentic exteriors. Character actor Pedro de Cordoba stars as Dorando, an officer of the Spanish army. When his wife is killed as the result of an attack by the lascivious Marques de Bazan (Gustav Von Seyffertitz), Dorando becomes an outlaw and is soon known as the Bandolero. He kidnaps the Marques' young son, Ramon, and hands him over to be raised by one of his own men. When Ramon grows up he falls in love with Dorando's beautiful daughter, Petra (Renée Adorée). Dorando forbids the match, so Ramon leaves and becomes a bullfighter. When Ramon turns down the advances of Concha (Dorothy Rush), she vindictively asks the Marques to order him to kill a bull before it has been worn out. Only after Ramon is gored does the Marques discover that he is his own son. He rushes to Ramon's bedside and begs forgiveness from both his son and Dorando. Dorando, who has been made chief of the mountain police, accepts the apology. Ramon recovers and Dorando gives him and Petra his blessings.
