Mistakenly believing his wife to be unfaithful, a medical doctor seeks solace in the West in this low-budget oater directed by and starring Benjamin F. Wilson. Returning from attending to a patient, Dr. Holmes finds his wife Marie (Marceline Day), a former cabaret singer, in the arms of family friend Albert Darnton. In reality, Darnton is attacking the poor woman, but Holmes is too busy being enraged to notice. In the West, the recovering medico works incognito at the Egan ranch, discovering that his employer is actually a cattle rustler. A changed man, Holmes not only brings the rustlers to justice, but he hurries back home to save his wife from a life threatening illness. This overly complicated story was adapted for the screen by the prolific Arthur F. Statter.
