William Farnum toplines this drama, as a character known only as The Drifter. Employed as an itinerant lumberjack, he lands in the middle of a brutal struggle between two opposing logging companies, then learns that the proprietor of one of the firms is his long-estranged brother. Meanwhile, at the rival company, the boss's adopted daughter falls prey to the clutches of her biological father - an escaped convict who kidnaps the young woman without recognizing her identity.
