Discovered by the husband, Tom apparently kills him; and Bob, believing himself to be dying and that Joan loves Tom, assumes responsibility for the crime and signs a confession. Although Bob recovers, his brother announces his death. When Bob reappears, Tom arrests him; and Bob is about to be lynched when Joan forces a confession from the widow of the slain officer.

This 1922 silent melodrama was produced by was based on the story, "The Poetic Justice of Uko San" by James Oliver Curwood and starred Alice Lake and Kenneth Harlan. It also featured brothers, Noah Beery, Sr. and Wallace Beery. Sadly, I Am the Law is now listed as a lost silent film.
