This drama starring Wallace Reid offers a lot of action and little else. Bob Fulton (Reid) is the superintendent of a mine in the West. He wins the enmity of dancehall owner Jack King (Henry Barrows) when he saves one of the girls, Rose De Braisy (Florence Carpenter), from his unwanted advances. Fulton also wins Rose's love, which he does not return. The mine's owner sends his troublesome son, Roland Holt (John Burton), out West to work at the mine. Before Holt leaves the East he secretly marries Beth Hoover (Myrtle Stedman). Upon Holt's arrival, Fulton tries to befriend him, but Holt prefers the company of bad-guy King. Holt and King break open the company's safe, but Fulton catches them. Before escaping, Holt wounds Fulton, but his wife, Beth, who has arrived from the East, nurses Fulton back to health. She falls in love with Fulton, and when a posse shoots down her errant husband, she is free to wed again.
