Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

Suffering from shell-shock, returning war veteran Jack Hoxie is falsely accused of being a criminal in this typical silent oater from the Universal salt mines. Unscrupulous Gentleman Harry" King (Claude Payton) has concocted the scheme in order to gain access to Hoxie's inheritance. A veteran stock company actor who began his long screen career in the early 1910s with the Thanhouser Company of New Rochelle, New York, Claude Payton continued to menace cowboy stars until his retirement in the late 1930s. Appearing in a minor role as a tramp was Jack Hoxie's younger brother Al Hoxie, here billed as "Alton Stone."
