In this silent comedy drama, a grizzled mountain man tries to make the best of a disappointing situation when his wife bears him a girl rather than the much-hoped for son. Rather than be all depressed, the feller names the baby "Bill" and raises her as a boy. That's all fine and dandy until the Bill grows up and Mother Nature asserts herself and the girl begins affecting feminine ways. While this is disconcerting to her father, the town sheriff is delighted and wild-mountain romance blooms.
