Poverty row's Anthony J. Xydias produced this average Jack Hoxie western about smugglers on the Mexican border. Drifters Hoxie and Frank Rice happen upon the sheriff (Tom Lingham), who has been left for dead by the unscrupulous whisky smugglers. The sheriff's stupid daughter (Marin Sais, Hoxie's wife) mistakes Hoxie for a kidnapper and has him arrested by the deputy Silo (Pat Harmon). Silo, however, is in reality the leader of the gang and is himself arrested -- by Hoxie who is revealed as a U.S. Marshal in disguise.
