He meets a farmer named Clem Broderick and his strange blind daughter Jane.

However, despite all her powers, she is unable to read Cliff's mind and discover his plan to steal the Broderick farm out from under them. However, when Jane discovers what the stranger is up to, she invokes a vision in which Cliff is terrorized by the forces of nature and drowns in the river.

Cliff (Alan Curtis) and Sam (Frank Fenton) are on the run after Sam has committed a robbery. They split up and we follow the route that Cliff takes and the women that he meets along the way. Once he comes across Jane (Gloria Jean), his life will change forever.
This film has two flashback sequences at the beginning to explain how Cliff is an unlucky victim in life. He distrusts women and he is told to feel compassion for others if he wants to find happiness in life. The film is inconsistent in that he dumps Betty (Grace McDonald) at the beginning of the film after she has shown her loyalty to him. It didn't make sense. The main part of the story happens once Cliff comes across Jane and her very likable father Clem (Frank Craven). Jane is blind and seems to live in a fairytale world where she works alongside Mother Nature. Don't annoy her. Cliff does...........
The film is short and ties up rather too conveniently but it's still worth watching again.
