With his rugged frame, Monroe Salisbury was right at home in northwoods dramas like this one. His co-star is a pre-flapper, pre-Dutch boy bob Colleen Moore. Young Louis Delorme (Arthur Jasmine) falls in with a bad group of characters and as a result he gets tangled up in whiskey smuggling. Although he eludes the police for a while, eventually he is thrown in prison along with the notorious Rossingnol (Salisbury). Two years pass, and Louis' sister, Rosine (Moore), is preparing to marry Sergeant O'Farrell (William Stowell). A pair of mysterious men show up at the wedding feast, followed by an equally mysterious woman. Word arrives that Louis and Rossingnol have escaped, so the wedding is postponed while O'Farrell goes in search of the fugitives. The taller and more sinister looking stranger approaches Rosine and reveals that he is Rossingnol and that Louis can be found in a cabin at the end of the "road of death." He convinces the girl to lead him over the dangerous path, and they are followed by the strange woman, who loves Rossingnol. Although Rossingnol dies at the end of the trail, Rosine is reunited with Louis and returns to her fiancé so they can be wed.
