In this Harry Carey/John Ford collaboration, Carey plays Texas Ranger Jim Kyneton. Jim's foster brother Nick (Vesta Pegg) has fallen in with a pack of bandits who rob a mine. For this particular Ranger, duty comes before family, and Jim arrests all of them, including Nick. But Roseen (Claire Anderson), a dance-hall girl, is angry because Jim spurned her, so she helps the varmints escape. Jim has to go round them up all over again, which he does -- except for Nick, who commits suicide by riding his horse off a cliff. His job finished, Jim returns to Betty (Gloria Hope), the girl he loved all along.
