Cowboy star Tom Mix plays Jack Kilmeny, an Englishman who owns a gold claim in the U.S. Jack has two problems -- his worthless partner Curly (Jack Nelson), and the British company on the land next to his who hope to jump his claim. Jack finds himself fighting for his property without any help from Curly. Then Lord and Lady Farquar (Robert Dunbar and (Hatty Buskirk) arrive to help jump the claim. Romance blooms when Jack saves their daughter Moya (Teddy Sampson) from a runaway wagon. Curly robs a man and tries to lay the blame on Jack, and Moya's former fiancé, Bobyan Verinder (Harry Lonsdale), tries to take back both Jack's mine and the girl. Jack heroically fights his way through all these troubles and wins Moya's hand. The British spin on this Western likely came about because of producer William Fox's recent trip to England, and his company's attempt to appeal to the English market.
