Jefferson Hunter (Frank Keenan) is a Western mining man. Anne Kepple (Catherine Adams) has inherited the mine next to his, but a loan shark steals it from her. Hunter helps her get it back, and out of gratitude Anne marries him, even though she is half his age. The May-December alliance is happy for a while, until Nathan Hargrave (Donald McDonald), an Eastern financier, comes around. He paints such a vivid picture of New York life that Anne convinces her husband that they should go there. Anne has a wonderful time, but Hunter figures out that Hargrave is trying to steal her away. Always a bit insecure about the relationship, Hunter figures that Anne no longer loves him and insists that he and Hargrave stage a duel. He plans to just let the younger man kill him, but Hargrave is too nervous to shoot straight. Hunter returns West, back to his old life with partner Chuck Wilson (George Hernandez). His son, Richard (Cliff Alexander), comes to visit and not long after, Anne -- who has learned to truly appreciate her husband -- returns. This film was based on a stage play by Edward H. Peple.
