This tale of the Canadian North starred Dorothy Phillips, the wife of director Alan Holubar (actually, Rosemary Theby in a supporting role is a far more interesting actor than Phillips ever was). When Monsieur Redoux (Robert Schable) chases after Yvonne Desmarest (Phillips), his wife (Theby) believes she is "the other woman." In a jealous rage, Madam Redoux murders her husband, but she is acquitted with the implication that Yvonne was Redoux's lover. The girl's reputation is ruined, and she denounces the judge, Monsieur Duroacher (Lewis Dayton), in his courtroom. To escape the gossip and scorn, Yvonne goes to her father's estate in Hudson Bay. Duroacher discovers that Yvonne was completely innocent, and he tracks her down to help right the wrong he did her. At first Yvonne refuses to have anything to do with him, but she falls in love with him when she realizes he is sincerely sorry for the trouble he has caused her. Duroacher winds up having to fight for his own reputation before he is able to save Yvonne's.
