Petite Viola Dana stars in this drama about the West in the 1870s. Actress Audrey Graham (Dana) has a sister who is betrayed by Alvin Steele (Hayward Mack). When the sister dies, Audrey becomes determined to seek revenge and puts her career on hold while she heads out for Hell's Paradise, the mining camp where Steele has gone. She is part of a caravan which nearly perishes in Death Valley. To save herself, she dresses as a child, locates a group of bandits, and asks for relief. The bandits easily figure out her disguise, but they let her go -- providing she bring them Steele. Zachary Wando(Clifford Bruce), the bandit leader, is married to yet another woman, Lou (Mabel Van Buren), who was betrayed by the varmint. After getting a job as a dancehall girl, Audrey tracks down her man, but along the way she has fallen in love with Wando. She is willing to give him up, however, for the sake of his wife.
