Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Jim Glover (Wallace Reid) is an engineer in charge of constructing a railroad to the sea. He gives the company president Gage (Theodore Roberts) a tour of the area of land coveted for its use as a short cut that can save hours on the journey. After the officials visit a recently constructed dam, the train makes a stop in a dull town, and Gage's daughter Laura (Agnes Ayers) throws a charity bazaar to combat the boredom. Jim puts together a mock-holdup that saves the event from financial ruin, endearing Laura to him. Later, an accident traps three workers in a cave, and Jim is called away to rescue the victims. While he is gone, the villain Harrison (Lloyd Whitlock) tries to claim the land slated for the railroad shortcut for himself. Jim must save the men, claim the land parcel and win the girl before all is lost.
