While sailing to Panama, Red Saunders (Harry Carey) meets Mary Smith (Claire Du Brey) and her sweetheart Arthur Saxon (George Webb). Mary is traveling to Panama to do missionary work with Belknap (T.D. Crittenden), but Saxon doesn't think much of him. This causes a lot of tension between the couple. When they arrive at the dock, Red gets a job working with rancher Jim (Bill Gettinger). Belknap is instrumental in having Mary and Saxon break up, and Red discovers that Belknap is allied with a group of revolutionaries. With the help of several of his Latin friends, Red is able to round up the agitators. He then gives Belknap an hour to leave town, while he tells Mary the truth about this supposed missionary. He also helps reunite Mary with Saxon.
