The multitalented Dorothy Donnelly stars as an Indian maiden with the colorful moniker of Nahnya Crossfox. Happy and secure on her own tribal territory, Nahnya leaves its boundaries for the first time to seek out a doctor for her injured mother. The doc turns out to be a handsome young gent named Cowdray (J.W. Johnson), and it isn't long before he and Nahnya fall in love. But when Cowdray's white sweetheart Renee (Kitty Sholto) makes an unexpected appearance, Nahnya sadly realizes that her romance was not meant to be. To make certain that neither she nor her fellow Indians will ever set eyes on another white man, Nahnya blows up the entrance to her tribal valley, thereby justifying the film's title.
