Whistling Dan (Tom Mix) is raised by the kindly rancher Old Joe Cumberland (Harry Lonsdale) after Dan is found wandering the desert as a youth. After he becomes a man, Dan wanders throughout the West, following the wild geese when they fly South every year. He finds trouble in a lawless town and wounds a rival gunman. When the man dies, his brother goes gunning for Dan, who vows to stand his ground and face his adversary in a classic western showdown. Fellow ranch hand Buck Daniels (Sid Jordan) brings news to Dan that Old Joe is brokenhearted and near death over the absence of Dan, who decides to return to the ranch and settle down. Buck infuriates Dan into chasing him back home, but the gunman still seeks to avenge his brother's death and goes after Dan. He must face his adversary before returning home to marry Joe's daughter Kate (May Hopkins) in this routine western.
