This fast-paced melodrama is set in Tall Timber country, with a few side trips to the High Society set. Kenneth Harlan stars as a devil-may-care lumberman who is constantly at odds with his far-from-pleasant brother (Jack Richardson). The plot thickens when brother dear betrays everyone in sight for the sake of a quick buck, following in the footsteps of his covetous mother. Tragedy ensues when the villain "ruins" an innocent young girl (played by future radio star Barbara Luddy) who promptly throws herself over a cliff. Heroine Edna Murphy manages to escape this fate, enjoying a happy-ever-after with hero Harlan.
