As described in a film magazine,[2] Channing (O'Brien), a member of the Northwest Mounted Police and known to his fellows as "the Duke," is sent to a town to watch a gang of outlaws that have crossed the border from the United States and are suspected in the shooting of a Northwest Mounted Policeman. He meets Cicily Varden (Naldi) who is engaged to a youth living with the family. This young man has fallen in with the gang at McCook's saloon, and in an altercation shoots a man. The young woman attempts to hide him when Channing enters the cabin. Because her fiance has broken his promise not to go to McCook's, she breaks her engagement with him and declares her love for Channing. This meets with the approval of her father when he learns of the circumstances. The film is noted as having several flashbacks regarding Channing's life in England prior to enlisting in the Northwest Mounted.
