In her final of three "singing cowgirl" Westerns for low-budget Grand National, Dorothy Page learns that her neighbors, the Harkinses, have been murdered. Only young Billy Harkins (Dix Davis) was spared in the massacre and soon a bandit also takes a shot at poor Billy. Hooking up with handsome drifter Dick Williams Dave O'Brien and Billy's uncle Rex (Paul Barrett), Dorothy discovers that the killings were ordered by crooked attorney Joe Tolen (Stanley Price), who is after his neighbors' gold-rich land. Held hostage by a desperate Gunhand Garrick (Warner P. Richmond) -- Tolen's chief lieutenant -- Billy, Rex, and Tolen's innocent niece Nora (Dorothy Short) are saved in the nick of time by Dorothy and Dick, who have discovered that they are in love.
