Natalie and Barbara Rand (Catherine Calvert and Ann May) are sisters from a poor Southern family. Natalie is engaged to the equally poor Ned Gardner (Edward Burns), but the naive Barbara gets herself in trouble. She allows a man to take her to a roadhouse and then has to escape his amorous advances. She jumps out of a window at the place, which causes her to become blind, and the shock kills her mother. Natalie decides that she must track down the man who wronged her sister and seek vengeance. So she sacrifices her romance with Ned to marry the wealthy Oliver Landis (George Majeroni). She uses his money to give Barbara an operation and dedicates herself to her search. When she finally tracks down the evildoer, it turns out to be her husband, who is a murderer on top of being a lecher. Natalie tries to shoot him, but he pulls the gun out of her hands and finishes the job himself. Now a widow, Natalie is free to reunite with Ned.
