This independently made program picture gives away its low-budget nature by its proliferation of exteriors and lack of star names. Even the dog that appears, Brindle, is a second-stringer when compared to bigger stars like Strongheart or Rin Tin Tin. Lumber king David Hartley (Walter Davis) is called to the camp on business, and while he is away, a mysterious stranger comes to visit his wife Florence (Esther Welty). The whole village starts whispering about the man's identity and soon rumors about Florence reach Hartley. He rushes towards home and is attacked by a wolf pack. The couple's children, Dolly (Clara Heller) and Bobby (Everett Moran), have become lost in the woods and their lives too are in danger. But their dog Brindle comes to the rescue and fights off the wolves. Back at home, Hartley discovers that the stranger is Florence's brother, "Blackie" Devoe (George C. Welch), who has gotten himself in trouble with the law and come to his sister for help.
