This is a rather confusing silent Western melodrama in which Jack Mills (Buck Jones) comes to the aid of a friend, Bud Loupel (William Scott), who has robbed a bank to keep up his house payments. Idiotically, Jack helps his friend by holding up the very same bank, pretending to steal the money his friend had already taken. But Bud gets into a shooting fight with the bank president and, on his deathbed, confesses his guilt. Despite the far-fetched, downright silly plot, the trade magazine Variety claimed the film was "probably the best release Jones has had to date." Rhody Hathaway, the father of director Henry Hathaway, played the heroine's father.
