Hillaire Latour ( J. Warren Kerrigan ), a warmhearted Canadian trapper, marries Rosalie Dufresne ( Lois Wilson ) and then travels into the woods to seek his fortune as a lumberman. At the camp, he befriends "Spud" Lafferty ( Walter Perry ), who for six years has tried unsuccessfully to return home with his money, each time falling prey to a beautiful woman who works in the saloon "down the hill." When Hillaire learns through a letter that he is a father, he asks for his money and begins the journey home, but on his first night away from camp, he enters the saloon, where he is robbed by the beautiful Louise ( Claire Du Brey ). Forced to return to the lumber camp, Hillaire saves his money, but the next year he is cheated again. Louise is on the verge of robbing him a third time when Hillaire, in a rage, wrecks the dance hall and forces her to return his money. At the police station, Hillaire is reunited with his family, who have finally come in search of him.
This 1918 silent drama was produced by Jesse D. Hampton Productions, starring J. Warren Kerrigan and Lois Wilson. The survival status of Prisoners of the Pines is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
