Keeping in mind that "Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for a friend," a Northwest Mounted Police officer saves his own brother from a murder rap in this action adventure from Universal. When Ross Darby (Harold Goodwin) is accused of murdering nasty "Slip" Martin (Harry Carter), older brother David (Roy Stewart) assumes the blame. About to be executed, David is saved by dance-hall girl Mary Malcolm (Laura La Plante), who proves Ross' culpability. Despite the fact that Mary caused his brother's downfall, David marries her.
