Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Evelyn Brent takes on a Douglas Fairbanks Sr.-type role in this action-adventure film. Senorita Catalina (Brent), the ward of a cruel Spanish governor (William Humphrey) pretends to be an invalid, but in secret she plans a revolution, disguised as a notorious masked bandit, La Ortega. She captures Hugh Winthrop, a handsome American who has come to inspect his mines (Robert Ellis). He manages to escape and later is surprised to meet his captor at the governor's home. The two of them fall in love. La Ortega steals some important documents to prove that the people are being treated unjustly. She and Winthrop are caught together. Winthrop is sentenced to be shot, while La Ortega escapes and rounds up her followers. They arrive just in time to save him. The governor and his men are arrested, while La Ortega is united with her American lover.
