There's nothing really exceptional about this progammer, which takes a pair of society people and places them at the mercy the harsh wilds of the Northwoods. Ninon Le Compte (Katherine MacDonald) is bored with her meaningless life in New York, so when she inherits a trapping ground from her uncle, she uses it as an excuse to escape. A persistent suitor, Frederick Van Cort (Bryant Washburn), accompanies her to the frozen North. The region's boss man, Lazar (Mitchell Lewis) -- a brute of a man -- makes things tough for Ninon. Ultimately, he attacks her, and when she resists he sets fire to the storehouse. During a fierce blizzard, Ninon, Van Cort, and Lazar all look for shelter and the two men get into a fist fight. Van Cort is badly wounded and to save him Ninon has to drive a sled through the storm. But she is able to find help in time. Now that Van Cort has proven his manliness by risking his life for her, Ninon accepts his marriage proposal.
