In one of his several 1927 vehicles, action star Billy Sullivan plays wealthy Billy Mathewson, who is disowned by his father when he becomes engaged to brassy chorus girl Toots Sweet (Marie Messenger). Hoping to make amends, Billy gets a job with the construction crew working on a small-town dam financed by his dad. Not unexpectedly, he saves the dam from imminent destruction and also finds time to expose the chicanery of local crook George Milburn (Jerome La Grasse). He also puts his private life in order by dumping the gold-digging Toots in favor of virginal Elinor (Mildred June).
