In her first leading role, a very young Norma Shearer played Jeanne, a wild girl of the Canadian Northwest who marries and has a child with a mystery man, Oliver Thornton (Wilfred Lytell). Having been convicted of a crime he didn't commit, Thornton is hoping to start a new life in Canada but is soon blackmailed by Duclos (Fred C. Jones), a villainous trapper. When Thornton fails to respond, Duclos kidnaps Jeanne. With the help of his brother (Charles Beyer), Thornton manages to reclaim his wife, and Duclos is killed by one of his Indian henchmen. Upon his return, Oliver learns that he has been cleared of the crime for which he was innocently convicted.
