Stunt actor Richard Holt stars in this zippy, low-budget comedy-melodrama. Glenn Horton (Holt) is a golf fanatic. He practices on his front lawn, much to the annoyance of everyone nearby -- they are constantly getting pelted with balls. Finally, a group of passers-by organize a manhunt and go after Horton. The angry throng pursues him to a freight yard, where he stops a gang of kidnappers from making off with a pretty young woman (Mary Beth Milford). The girl happens to be Edna Perry, the daughter of the mayor (Wilbur Higgins). Although the kidnappers have been foiled, Horton and Edna wind up being carried off in a boxcar, which takes them on a number of adventures. Ultimately, Horton saves the mayor from being assassinated by the same men who tried to kidnap his daughter. As a result, he and Edna are happily united.
