Western star Buck Jones was still billed "Charles Jones" when he appeared in this rather commonplace Northwest melodrama about a mining engineer who loses his money gambling in the Yukon.The inveterate gambler falls in love with "Snowdrift" (Dorothy Manners), a "half-breed." The girl, of course, is actually the orphaned offspring of white parents and only raised by the Indians. She is in danger of losing her virtue to a nefarious dance-hall proprietor (G. Raymond Nye), but the regenerated former gambler saves her in the nick of time from the ubiquitous fate worse than death.
