Harold Lloyd plays a wealthy, spoiled New York City boy in this two-reeler. His parents, fed up with his nightclubbing ways, ship him off to his uncle's ranch in Piute Pass. Harold pulls into the rootin', tootin' town and it isn't long before he has a run-in with bully "Tiger Lip" Thompkins (Noah Young. The bully is terrorizing a virtuous young girl Mildred Davis by locking up her sick father. He'll let her dad go only if she gives in to his lecherous wishes. Harold saves the father, and the wrathful bully is determined to get Harold. He sends his gang in pursuit, but Harold eludes them and winds up with the girl. One especially funny bit in this comedy is when Harold hides from the bullies in a skirt that's hanging on a clothesline.
