Plutina ( Clara Kimball Young ), an illiterate mountain girl who lives with her grandfather, refuses to marry moonshiner Dan Hodges ( Robert Cummings ), preferring instead Zeke ( Chester Barnett ), a young farmer. When Zeke learns that Dan, in revenge, shot Plutina's pet trained bear, Zeke vows to kill him. After a revenue officer, shot by Dan, is cared for by Zeke's mother, Dan vows to kill Zeke. Dan and Zeke fight, and although Dan is beaten, he escapes into the mountains. Sometime later, the revenue officer secures for Zeke the position of overseer of government timber lands. As Zeke waits for a train after missing the first one, he learns that Dan, who has threatened to kill Plutina's grandfather and sister and set fire to their house unless Plutina marries him, has abducted her. Zeke arrives at a secluded cave where Dan has taken Plutina just as she is about to jump from a cliff. The ensuing brawl ends when Dan is plunged over the cliff. Finally, Zeke and Plutina marry.
This 1915 silent drama was based on the novel The Heart of the Blue Ridge by Waldron Baily, produced by the World Film Corporation, starring popular actress, Clara Kimball Young. Tragically, The Heart of the Blue Ridge now remains a lost silent film.
