Synopsis by Janiss Garza
When Cecilia May Morgan (Pauline Curley) is betrayed and killed by foreigner Enrico Colonna (Fred H. Malatesta), her family swears revenge. Colonna is staying in the mountains with his sister Eleanore (Mary Thurman), when the Morgans go gunning for him. In his hunt, brother Dabney Morgan and his horse fall into some quicksand, and Colonna, hearing cries for help, saves him. Because of this act, Dabney holds off the rest of his kin and offers Colonna a chance. Unfortunately, Colonna fails the test and is shot by Dabney. Eleanore arrives and forces Dabney, at gunpoint, to take Colonna to a cabin and nurse him. While they are trying to save the man's life, the two fall in love. Colonna dies anyway, leaving Dabney and Eleanore to resolve their differences and continue their romance.
