The title lass in this Eclipse production is a goatherd-ess, in love with a strapping mountain youth. During his daily sojourn through the hills, the hero gets mixed up in a skirmish between two hunters. To avoid injury, he collapses to the ground and plays dead then escapes into the mountains. Several weeks pass before he sees his sweetheart again, by which time she has fallen out of love with him. Spotting the girl keeping company with a handsome artist, the mountaineer goes crazy and lunges after his rival with a huge knife. The girl responds with a severe tongue-lashing and flounces off with her new boyfriend, leaving her ex-beau flat.
