Ranch foreman Tom Snow (Tom Mix) is being hounded by sheriff Luke Fisher (Pat Chrisman) and his deputy, Brad Foster (Sid Jordan). The pair are really cattle rustlers, and they're trying to pin the blame on Snow. Snow escapes from them and leads them on a death-defying escape over a chasm. After he has dodged them, he finds a girl who has been thrown from her horse. Her name is Sunshine (Bessie Eyton), and she's running from gambler Craig Keyes (Will Machin), who attacked her. Things are too hot for Fisher and Foster so they leave town, which allows Snow to concentrate on his romance with Sunshine. Only after they get married do they realize that they might be brother and sister. But Snow's housekeeper, Martha (Eugenie Besserer), tells them the truth -- she changed babies when she was working at a hospital, and Snow is really her son. Sunshine is actually the sister of Keyes. Keyes is outside the house eavesdropping, and when he hears this, he swears off women and he too leaves the country. This was a good, solid Mix Western.
