Eastern boy Malcolm McGregor takes a job in a Western lumber camp to improve his manliness. In his job as overseer, he meets and falls for lovely Colleen Moore, a young woman abused by her husband Ernest Torrence. In the ensuing fight over Moore, a bridge is demolished and the villain is finally killed in a drawn-out fight which the trade-paper Variety pronounced "preposterous." Winifred Kimball was rumored to have won a $30, 000 prize from the New York Daily News for penning this none too original story. " "If this is 'de truth' it's a soft racket!" Variety commented.
