Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Wealthy Henry Arlington (William Lloyd) despairs that his profligate nephew Dick (Franklin Farnum) will never amount to anything. At the end of his tether, Arlington announces that he will cut his nephew off without a cent -- but before he can make this decision legal, the old man is shot to death. Certain that he will be accused of the crime, Dick heads for the hills. During his flight, he saves the life of pretty Margaret Hammersley (Gloria Hope). Hero and heroine become engaged, but their wedding plans are scuttled when word gets out that there is a $5000 reward on Dick's head. Convincing Dick to stop running away from his troubles, Margaret transports him back to the scene of the murder, where together they expose the guilty party -- who turns out to be the same fellow who advised Dick to escape the law in the first place!
