In one of his few surviving Westerns, silent screen cowboy Art Acord plays Dick Weatherby, a young rancher whose unscrupulous father "Bulldog" is making a fortune buying up the neighboring ranches and selling them to road builders. When Pete (Tom Bay), Dick's cousin, robs the Weatherby safe, Bulldog blames Tom Wayne (Jack Ponder), an especially recalcitrant neighbor, and orders Dick to get rid of the rest of the Wayne family. Instead of ousting her, Dick falls in love with Tom's pretty sister Nesta (Peggy Montgomery) and promises to help her keep the ranch. An angered Pete kidnaps Nesta, but she is saved by Dick. Out of jail on bail, Tom confronts Bulldog, who suddenly sees the error of his ways and has a reconciliation with Dick. Pete makes himself scarce and Dick proposes to Nesta.
