This tale of the northern gold fields was reportedly shot on location in Alaska. Two brothers strike it rich and head back for the States. They take a break from their trek, however, in Dawson City, where they go to a dance hall. The proprietor notes the brother's overflowing bag of gold dust, and asks his daughter, Lou (Queenie Martell), to work her magic on the young men. But Lou actually falls in love with one of the brothers and makes plans to elope with him. Her father finds out about the elopement and plans not only to stop her, but to kill the miners for their gold. Lou manages to foil his plans, and the brothers start off for the States once again. But Lou's father and an accomplice catch up with them, tie them up and leave them to freeze to death. They don't realize that Lou has followed, and she frees the brothers. They contact the police, who make quick work of the villains, while Lou accompanies the two men to their Vermont home.
