This Klondike drama was a remake of the 1917 picture starring Dorothy Dalton. It features Wallace Reid-lookalike Arnold Gray in a rare co-starring role. A dance hall girl known only as the Flame (Seena Owen) begins to reconsider her choices in life when she meets George Fowler, an inexperienced young prospector (Gray). Because she falls in love with Fowler, she undergoes a regeneration. Her heart breaks, however, when a woman (Winifred Greenwood) with a baby shows up looking for Fowler. Fowler, meanwhile, has lost all his money to the dance hall proprietor at a faro game. When the Flame discovers Fowler's misfortune, she wins all his money back at the roulette wheel. She then returns to her room and finds a note from the woman saying that she has found her husband and has left. So when Fowler appears, the Flame is surprised and overjoyed. It turns out the woman's husband was a different George Fowler, and the Flame gets to keep the man she loves.
