Like most drug pictures with a moral message, this bore no resemblance to reality whatsoever. It concerns an ex-con, Snap Gun Connor (Jack Standing), who seeks revenge on those who made his brother Ralph (Jack Abbott) an addict. The head of the drug ring turns out to be Dr. Graham (Monroe Salisbury), whose daughter Ailene (Gladys Brockwell), is Snap Gun's sweetheart. Tortured by his brother's fate and determined to put an end to Dr. Graham's business, Snap Gun kidnaps Ailene and hooks her on her father's "headache powders." Then, when she is at her most wretched, he parades her in front of her father. Dr. Graham is now filled with remorse and quits the drug trafficking business. Meanwhile, Snap Gun takes both his brother and Ailene to the mountains to cure them of their addition. Ralph returns to his fiancee; Ailene marries Snap Gun, apparently bearing him no ill will for her suffering.
