Sally O'Neil is "Mike," the hoydenish daughter of railroad-construction foreman Charles Murray. Our heroine tries to help out Harlan (William Haines), who's been having trouble finding work since serving a prison term for a crime he didn't commit. She arranges for Harlan to get a job on her dad's construction crew, and in this capacity he rescues the girl from train robbers. The climax is handled in a farcical manner, with "Mike"'s father and his "friendly enemy" Tad (Ford Sterling) arranging for a fleet of WWI planes to strafe the villains with bombs! Director Marshall Neilan also wrote the original story, so he had only himself to blame for the sillier plot developments.
