Storyline

As a result of a shake of dice Jane goes away to school, although she has grown up in the Tennessee mountains in willfulness and ignorance. At college the girl is taken care of by Marion Doyle, whose brother John she meets and whom she promises to marry. During her vacation in the mountain home Jane meets Ralph, John's worthless brother. He attacks her and she shoots him with his own gun. She rushes terror-stricken to the city and tells John she is a murderess. He goes to the mountains whence has come word of Ralph being insane. Having escaped, Ralph again seeks the mountains and there chases Jane, who has returned to the scene of the shooting. She hides in a hut. The door opens and John enters, searching for Ralph, who steps in behind him. There is a struggle. Ralph is choked into unconsciousness. When he recovers he again is sane. Jane comes out of her hiding place and Ralph is told of their betrothal. His heart is touched and he promises to mend his ways. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
