This western melodrama has far too many plot complications: Old Man Loring (John Smiley) is feuding with John Corliss (Sidney Mason) over the loss of some of Loring's sheep. The real culprit, however, is a character named "Fadeaway" (Robert Taber) who is working for Corliss but who gets fired and goes to work for Loring. Corliss, meanwhile, is romancing Loring's daughter Nell (Jane Miller). Fadeaway encourages Corliss's drunken brother Billy (William Human) to rob the Corliss safe. Then the varmint gets killed by a Mexican girl because he ruined her sister. First Corliss takes the blame because he thinks Nell is responsible, then Billy tries to shoulder the blame. But finally the Mexican girl admits to the murder, while Corliss and Nell get married and put an end to the feud.
