This short film was part of the "Santschi Series", which included the other short films The Spirit of the Lake, The Heart of Doreon,[5] Lorraine of the Timberlands, and Mother o' Dreams,[1] all of which starred Santschi.


Near the Mexico–United States border, when a woman's (Love) gold is stolen by a thief (Hearn), the woman seeks help from Rameriz (Santschi). Rameriz's jealous wife (Stonehouse) and the woman's geologist husband (Morley) assume that the woman and Rameriz are having an affair. In the end, the gold is returned and the honor of Rameriz is restored.[4][6]



Some outdoor scenes were filmed at Keen's Camp in Riverside County.[7]
