Carmelita (Hedda Nova) is the daughter of bandit Don Salvador (Carl Stockdale), who meets his end at the hands of the law. But before he dies, he insists that Carmelita choose one of his lieutenants, Pedro (Leo Malone) or Leonardo (Robert Gray) as a husband. Carmelita picks Pedro, but before they can be wed, she meets American artist Kent Staunton (Thurston Hall). He paints her portrait, and when a storm breaks out, she seeks refuge in his cabin. Pedro goes after Staunton in a jealous rage, but the artist has him arrested. While in jail, the bandit tells Carmelita that Staunton is in league with the lawmen who killed her father. So Carmelita decides to kill Staunton, but she can't because she has come to love him. Then she finds out that Staunton is not a spy for the law. Pedro, however, still insists on vengeance. The girl is torn over what to do, so the outlaws kidnap her and take her to the hills. There is a battle between warring bands of outlaws, and Pedro is killed. Leonardo tells Carmelita that she is free to marry Staunton, which she does.
