Martha Ryerson (Evelyn Selbie) seeks refuge for herself and her stepdaughter, Ellen Daw (Pauline Starke), with the Cree family. Her brutal husband, Kip (Jack Curtis), comes looking for her and shoots Alderson Cree (Charles Edler). As he is dying, Cree makes his son David swear to avenge his death, but while the boy is off looking for help, he tells Martha to release him from his vow. Martha, however, wants to be rid of her husband and keeps quiet. Storekeeper George Hedrick (George Hernandez) leads a mob to force Ryerson out of town, and then they claim he is dead so that David will not have to do the deed himself. When David grows up (to be played by Bernard Durning), Ryerson returns. Although his fiancée Mary Reddin (Gloria Hope), has tried to talk him out of his pledge, his mother (Eugenie Besserer) insists that he keep it. Ryerson encounters David, but he falls to his death from a mountain trail without much effort on the young man's part.
