Maria Lopez (Rosemary Theby) is the daughter of an American mother (Adele Farrington) and a Mexican father (Hector V. Sarno), who is the head of a band of insurgents. As a child, she was kidnapped by her father and raised south of the border to hate gringos. She begins to like them a lot better when, during an escape from some Mexican "Rurals," she crosses the border and is captured by Texas Ranger Danny O'Neil (George Stone). He lets her go, and they fall in love, but their romance is interrupted when she hears that her father has been captured by Americans. She gathers a band of men who attack a small border town where she meets her mother for the first time. Eventually, O'Neil convinces Maria to settle down and become his wife. This film was based on the play by Augustus Thomas.
