Amidst the furor of the Civil War a courageous Union captain, nursing a broken heart, volunteers for spy duty. Masquerading as a Confederate sympathizer who has obtained important Union plans, he eventually lands at the plantation of home of a southern belle with whom he falls in love. Her love for him proves problematic because part of his duty is to get arrested so he can slip the bogus plans to the Confederate army. Unfortuantely, every time he is about to be arrested, the belle intervenes and gets him released. After finally escaping her influence long enough to complete his mission, he is captured and sentenced to stand before a firing squad. But is this end or will salvation again come in the nick of time?
