Silent cowboy-star Hoot Gibson specialized in playing ruffled, slightly comical cowpokes suffering from a mix of shyness and brash action. In this typical Silent Gibson western, the "Hooter" plays a Quaker, whose father (William Welsh) is falsely accused of murder. The son, up until then the butt of endless jokes because of his pacifist ways, kidnaps the sheriff's pretty daughter (Edna Murphy) in order to enforce a fair trial for his father. She falls for the hero, of course, and he is allowed to track down the real killer (Wade Boteler). A pretty brunette known for her "flapper" roles, Edna Murphy was at one time married to director Mervyn LeRoy.
