As its title implies, this independently made, routine melodrama takes place in the Canadian North Woods. Raoul LaFane (Francis McDonald) is a brutal, hard-drinking trapper who abuses his wife, Marie (Eva Novak), on a regular basis. During one attack, she shoots him and he falls. Marie is convinced he is dead and, fearing that she will be arrested for murder, flees into the snowy wilderness. Eventually she is found by Louis LaBlanc (Robert Ellis), and he helps her out. Romance blossoms between them and they marry. At this point -- not surprisingly -- it is revealed that LaFane is alive after all and when he shows up, Marie reveals her past to LaBlanc. LaBlanc tracks down LaFane, and the two eventually come to blows. During their battle, LaFane falls over a cliff to his death. LaBlanc comes back and tells Marie that she no longer has anything to worry about.
