This melodrama takes place in the Missouri of the 1860s -- a good place for Universal Studios to place their manly star, Frank Mayo. When the quick-tempered Jefferson De Croteau (Mayo) wins a horse race, the loser insults him. De Croteau knocks him down and, believing that he has killed him, heads for the mountains. He winds up at a cabin retreat with a group of men, and it doesn't take him long to figure out they're all bandits. The head of the gang is planning to get revenge on a judge who sent his brother to jail. He also has designs on the judge's daughter, Francine (Sylvia Breamer). De Croteau saves Francine and her father, then heads back home to clear himself of a theft charge. He gets the proper villains rounded up and then discovers that the man that he thought he killed is very much alive -- all the usual situations contained in your average Western programmer.
