After June Wheeler (Gladys Leslie) inherits a ranch from her uncle, one of the ranch's neighbors, sheriff Billy Durland (Frank Morgan), falls in love with her, so her life is seemingly complete. But a reprobate nephew appears as a claimant to the estate and throws everything into chaos. While his case is being investigated, he is found dead, and when June's gun is found, she is accused of his murder. In order to save her the stigma of being put behind bars, Durland sets the jail on fire then keeps guard over her in her own home -- which suits the both of them fine. One day, as he is searching for evidence to prove June innocent, Durland is shot by half-breed ranch hand Jean Bautiste (Warner Richmond), who is also in love with June. Bautiste turns out to be the killer, but he commits suicide before he is arrested. So June's life, and Durland's, return to normal.
