Before becoming famous for her amusing comedies, Dorothy Gish did a number of dramas for the Triangle studios. This was one of them. Sairy Ann (Gish), the daughter of moonshiner Pap Clayton (Charles Gorman), is being romanced by Jed Martin (A.D. Sears). But Sairy Ann prefers the town doctor, Richard Cavanagh (Sam deGrasse), who is also the son of the town judge (F.A. Turner). Jed is determined to kill his rival for Sairy's affections, but instead he kills the sheriff and is put on trial. Jed's family shows up en masse at the courthouse and when the proceedings start to go against their kin, they start shootin' and a dozen people are killed, including Pap Clayton. Jed escapes, but is recaptured by Dr. Cavanagh, and when things quiet down, the doctor and Sairy Ann are married.
