This Northwest melodrama was based on the novel The Law Bringers by G. B. Lancaster. Andree Grange (Renée Adorée), the daughter of the local cafe owner (Josef Swickward), is engaged to marry Sergeant Neil Tempest (Earle Williams) of the Northwest Mounted Police. But she falls in love with one of his underlings, Bucky O'Hara (Pat O'Malley), after a flirtation. In her father's cabin Andree is attacked by Barode Dukane (Wallace Beery), and she believes she has killed him in the ensuing struggler. Her father helps her to flee and O'Hara is ordered to find her and put her under arrest. He tracks her down, followed by Tempest. Tempest takes charge of Andree but they find themselves caught in the rapids and are saved only because O'Hara shows up. Andree's innocence is established, and Tempest realizes that she and O'Hara are in love, so he gives her up.
