The girl, her father and invalid mother toil to keep their small farm, which is mortgaged. The mortgage falls due, and gathering together their earnings, they find the sum not quite enough. On the farm are two farmhands, one a true Christian, who is the butt of the other, a renegade. The renegade imposes upon the Christian boy, regarding him to be without spirit. The boy learns of the family's need, and gives his mite, which increases their store sufficiently to pay off the mortgage. The renegade learns of the mortgage money, and, having victimized one of the young women of the village, decides to get his money and get away. It is now that the Christian boy shows his spirit and after an exciting chase and fight, succeeds in recovering the money.
