Greek Conniston (Harold Lockwood) is the idle son of a wealthy Wall Street financier. His father, fed up with his ways, gives him $500 and cuts him off. Greek heads out west with his pal Roger Hapgood (William Clifford), and they wind up on a ranch out West. Greek gets work with the cowboys and makes the acquaintance of the ranch owner's daughter, Argyl Crawford (Anna Little). Hapgood becomes the secretary to Argyl's father, John (W.H. Bainbridge). While Greek is using his fists to prove he's a tough guy and working his way up to superintendent of a construction job, Hapgood is conspiring with enemies of Crawford's. He puts a lot of obstacles in Greek's way, but Greek manages to get the job done on time, plus he winds up with Argyl.
