Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Pretty Dorothy Dalton co-stars with the handsome but not as stellar David Powell in this action-packed Paramount drama. The wealthy but idle Roger Wainright (Powell) finds himself falling in love with Gale Brenon (Dalton), a modern, independent young lady who manages several Florida orange groves. While Wainright is enjoying himself at a local gambling resort, the place is raided by revenuers and Sheriff Holmes (Jack Richardson) is killed in the ensuing gun fight. Wainright escapes and Gale hides him, later helping him to escape into the swamp. But the dead man is her father, and when she discovers that Wainright is suspected of being the one who discharged the fatal shot, she leads the posse to him. At the last moment, her love for him causes her to weaken, but he turns himself in anyway. A friend, Mabel Van Buren (Martha Mansfield), reveals that she witnessed the killing, and that it was another officer, Deputy Brown (former matinee idol Maurice Costello), who did the dirty deed. Evidence backs her up, and Wainright and Gale are reunited.
