Based on a serialized story by Max Brand, this silent "Mountain Melodrama" starred a veteran of the genre, William Farnum, as Billy Buell, a stranger involving himself with a long-standing mountain feud. The Benchleys and the Camps have been feuding ever since Lew Camp (J. Morris Foster) learned that his daughter Nellie (Doris May) was stolen by Jacob Benchley (Arthur Morrison) to replace a dead Benchley baby. Buell, who has fallen in love with Nellie, returns her to her mother (Virginia True Boardman). That doesn't sit well with the Benchley clan, who arrive for a final shootout. Happily, Buell's announcement that he intends to marry the girl puts an end to the feud before any bloodshed. A former star for pioneering producer Thomas H. Ince, Doris May was the wife of actor/director/producer Wallace MacDonald.
