William Russell does the good-bad man shtick in this feature. He's Big Jim O'Kane, rough foreman of a lumber camp and in charge of a group of even rougher men. When the father of his sweetheart, Mamie Lee (Eileen Percy), runs into money trouble, Big Jim and one of his pals rob an express company to help him out. But then Jim is framed for another robbery he didn't commit and winds up in the pokey. As he awaits trial, he watches a condemned murderer laboriously carve the figure of the crucified Christ on the prison wall. Somehow, viewing this makes him realize that it is best to live honestly. Meanwhile, Mamie, who was tricked by the villain, runs to the prison and saves her Big Jim from the false accusation.
