Silent-movie ingenue Alice Lake was well past her prime when she headed the cast of this second-string drama. Lake is cast as the bored wife of American revenue officer Jack Richardson, who leads a lonely existence along the U.S./Canadian border. Hoping to add some spice to her life, Lake deserts her husband to run off with glib city-slicker Stuart Holmes. Inevitably, Holmes turns out to be a smuggler, putting Richardson in the untenable position of having to arrest his own wife. But when Lake kills Holmes to save her husband's life, a tearful reconciliation is next on the docket. But hey -- where's the "hurricane"?
