Richard Travers stars in this cheapie Northwoods melodrama. David Manley (Travers) shows his heroic nature right away -- he saves Jim, an orphan boy (Harry Foulds), from a brutal saloonkeeper and adopts him. Helen Allen (Muriel Kingston) is a great admirer of Manley's, but the evil Hart Sonley (Jack Thornton Baston) lusts after her. Sonley blackmails Helen's father (Charles Graham) into giving him her hand. When Manley is shot in the back and an Indian girl, Wauna (Ruth LaMarr), nurses him, Helen believes that the two are involved. But Manley is determined to give Sonley what he deserves, and the two become embroiled in a savage fight. Sonley tries to shoot Manley, but Jim comes to the rescue, and guns the villain down. Before he dies, Sonley confesses to his wrongdoings. Helen by now has figured out that Manley loves her, not Wauna, and the pair are happily reunited.
