Johnny Harron, brother of actor Robert Harron, heads the cast in this mediocre crime drama. Country boy Johnny Miller (Harron) goes off to war, leaving behind his childhood sweetheart May Blake, who is blind (Gloria Gray). While at the front he risks his life to save Phil Condon (Eugene Beaudine), who he has befriended. What he doesn't realize is that Condon is a crook. Back home after the war, the only work Miller can find is as a gardener. Condon, meanwhile, has returned to his old associates and his greedy sweetheart, Dolores (Dorothy Revere). Dolores threatens to leave him unless he gets some money together, so he breaks into the home where Miller is working, and pins the crime on him. Miller is forced to leave town, and returns to May. During another robbery, Condon murders a cop and forces Miller to hide him at the Blake home. He orders Miller to steal money from May and her mother, and when he refuses, tries to do the job himself. Miller gives him a thrashing, and the police arrive in time to make the arrest. Since May has regained her sight, she and Miller are joyfully united.
