Joseph DeGrasse both directed and acted in this Northwoods melodrama. Priscilla Glenn (Dorothy Phillips) lives in a remote trading post with her stern father (C. Norman Hammond). When Jerry Jo (a pre-stardom Lon Chaney) tricks Priscilla into staying out all night, Glenn kicks her out of the house, even though she did nothing wrong. Anton Farwell, the local schoolmaster (DeGrasse), tries to help her out but he's got troubles of his own -- he has been hiding at the post because he killed a man over a girl. Priscilla goes to the city, where she becomes a nurse and once again meets up with Dick Travers (Jack Mulhall), whom she had met back home. She is able to track down Joan Moss (Grace Carlyle), the woman Farwell once loved, and get him cleared of his crime. Then she returns to the post and settles down with Travers.
