In this drama, set during the gold-rush, an unsuccessful prospector prepares to leave Alaska. But first he has a grand, drunken send-off. During the celebration a lawman is killed. The prospector is the prime suspect, and so he escapes to keep from being arrested. While on the lam, he encounters a wealthy but avaricious Englishman who is planning on robbing and killing an aged sourdough who has just found a productive stream. After murdering the old prospector, the English cad begins threatening the prospector's daughter; she and the younger prospector flee across a dangerous frozen river to escape him. En route, the young man falls in love with her. He soon finds out that he did not kill the lawman. The two lovers lead long and happy lives soon after.
