Bessie Love stars in this comedy, adapted from a novel by Belle K. Maniates. Love, as Penny, arrives in the West by aeroplane. She is considered a suspicious character and thrown into jail. Kurt Walters, a ranch foreman and deputy sheriff (Wheeler Oakman), discovers that she is the same girl that his friend, Jo Gary (Raymond Cannon), met in Chicago. Gary fell in love with her, but she confessed she was a thief. Since Penny claims she wants to reform, Walters releases her and sends her to live with Mrs. Kingdon (Lizette Thorne). In spite of her teasing and taunts (or perhaps because of them), Walters finds himself falling in love with Penny. The arrival of a mysterious stranger reveals that Penny is not really running from a gang of crooks like she claimed -- she's actually an actress who is trying to get away from her manager, who wants her to renew her contract. In the end, Penny prefers to stay on the ranch with Walters.
