Future screenwriter/director Crane Wilbur stars in this old-fashioned (for 1919) Western picture. Easterner Patricia Wentworth (Juanita Hansen) travels West in search of a "real man," and gets more than she bargained for when a stranger hitches a ride on the stagecoach that is carrying her. The stranger, known as Breezy Jim (Wilbur), is actually a detective in disguise and when they land in the town of Cheyanne, AZ, he investigates a supposed evangelist who says he is trying to enforce temperance. The truth is that he is an escaped convict who has stolen a pail of gold from an old timer. Patricia takes care of the old timer, who has been assaulted by the evangelist. Not done with his dirty work, the evangelist kidnaps Patricia and Jim's heroic efforts result in her rescue. This, of course, proves that he is the "real man" she has been looking for, and all ends well.
