This disjointed Western melodrama was not one of Harry Carey's better vehicles. It starts off with Carey, as metallurgist Neil Allison, being duped into assaying some false samples from a gold mine owned by Jim Starke (Edmund Cobt). When he calls Starke on this, an argument breaks out and Starke falls down dead. Allison runs away and becomes the partner of miner "Hopeful" Mason (Charles J.L. Mayne) who, unbeknownst to Allison, is Starke's father. The two men end up with a baby whose parents have died in a snowstorm. The baby becomes ill, and at the risk of his liberty, Allison goes to town to get a doctor. When Mason finds out that Allison is accused of his son's murder, he believes in his innocence and goes to find the real murderer himself. It turns out to be Starke's partner-in-crime, Hal Norton (Edward Hearn), who is also trying to steal Allison's girl, Judy Stanton (Margaret Landis). The bad guy gets his due, the hero reunites with his girl, and all ends well.
