Judging from this action picture, Charles Hutchison might as well have never left serials -- he performs enough stunts here to fill up ten episodes. Family black sheep Bob Sinclair (Hutchison) returns home after buying a ranch in Mexico to discover that his brother, Edwin (Earl Metcalf), is guilty of more wrongdoing than he could ever have dreamed up. Not only has Edwin been robbing his father, he's also encouraged Charles Stafford (George Hackathorne), the brother of Bob's sweetheart, Edith (Edith Thornton), to do the same. While trying to make the robbery look like an outside job, Stafford accidentally knocks down Lionel (David Torrence), Edwin and Bob's father, and nearly kills him. Edwin covers his tracks by pinning the assault on Bob, who is forced to stowaway on a boat headed for Mexico. Also on the ship are Edwin and Edith. Edwin is trying to trick Edith into marrying him, but Bob rescues her and they swim to shore. They expose Edwin's plot, and he is arrested. After being cleared, Bob weds Edith. By 1924, Hutchison was focusing more on his directing and producing career than he was on acting.
