After the death of her father, little Briar Rose ( Bessie Love ) is taken in by the men at a lumber camp. The girl shows a definite preference for one of the lumberjacks, "Hell-to-Pay" Austin ( Wilfred Lucas ), so he becomes her new "father." Just as much as Hell-to-Pay takes care of Briar, she watches over him, and it is largely through her influence that he gives up hard drinking and needless fighting. Then, when Briar is old enough, she goes away to school and quickly falls in with the wrong crowd. Hell-to-Pay comes after her and takes her away from Doris Valentine ( Mary Alden ), an adventuress who had been teaching Briar the tricks of the trade. When they are reunited, Hell-to-Pay and Briar realize that they are in love, so they decide to change their relationship from guardian and ward to husband and wife.
This 1916 silent comedy/drama was produced by the Triangle Film Corporation, starring Bessie Love and Wilfred Lucas. The survival status of Hell-to-Pay Austin is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
