A man and two women, suspected of stealing bonds, are traced to a country hotel. While Judith ( Anne Cornwall ), one of the women, is out horseback riding, the other two, Walter ( Lloyd Bacon ) and Vera ( Jessalyn Van Trump ), are arrested. When, during a storm, Judith is injured in a fall from her horse, Boone Pendleton ( James Liddy ) comes to her rescue. Soon the river becomes impassable, and they are trapped in Boone's cabin, where the two fall in love. Because of her plight, Judith refuses Boone's proposal of marriage, though, and after the river recedes, when detectives come for her, she escapes and then aids Walter and Vera in breaking out of jail. Taking refuge at Walter's country estate, they are again intercepted by the detectives. It is then revealed that Judith is Walter's sister and that the theft was his first offence; Judith and his wife Vera were helping him to escape punishment. When Walter returns the bonds, charges are dropped, and Judith is free to marry Boone.
This lost 1920 mystery/drama was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company. Sadly the status of this film is now listed as unknown.
