Pioneering film producer William Fox turned Jackson Gregory's 1919 Wild West story The Bells of San Juan into a strong silent vehicle for relative newcomer Buck Jones. Jones plays Rod Norton, a lawman searching for his father's killer. Norton suspects saloon owner Jim Garson (Claude Payton) but is lacking evidence. Garson's henchmen, the Rickard brothers, kidnap Norton's sweetheart Dorothy (Fritzi Brunette), hoping to lure the sheriff into a trap. Norton saves the girl, but a head injury turns the lawman into a bank robber. An operation returns him to sanity, however, and he brings the murderer and his helpers to justice.
