Manly William Desmond stars in this virile, low-budget Western. When Bud McGraw (Desmond) returns from the Great War, he is bored with living on the ranch belonging to his father (Joseph J. Dowling). He leaves and heads south, where he applies for a job as a ranger at a border camp. When a group of border police start giving him a hard time, McGraw is compelled to fight it out with them. This proves to be a bonding experience for the men, and they become devoted to one another. McGraw runs into Peggy Hughes (Virginia Brown Faire), whom he had met when her hat blew off the observation car of a passing train. When Peggy is kidnapped by bandits, the guys ride into Mexico to rescue her. McGraw almost single-handedly takes care of the bad guys in a rousing climax. Need it be said that he winds up with Peggy?
