William Russell's career was on a downslide when he appeared in this unoriginal program picture (he would make a short-lived comeback a year later when he appeared opposite Blanche Sweet in Anna Christie). Carl Morse (James Gordon) sends his son, Tom (Russell), to the Canadian Northwoods to investigate the goings-on at one of his trading posts. At the post, he finds Jessie McRae (Alma Bennett), who seems to be out to get all the bootleggers in the country. Jessie confesses that she was deserted by her drunken parents as an infant. However, this isn't true -- the man who claims to be her guardian (Charles K. French) is actually her father, Angus McRae. Tom discovers that Bully West (Stanton Heck) is the one responsible for the wrongdoings at the post and fires him. West then convinces McRae to force Jessie to marry him. Tom saves her and marries her himself, while her father atones for his behavior.
