Mary and her cousin Clairborne are the last descendants of the Lane family. They announce they are selling their land. Two land scouts come over to buy their property. One of them is Roland Manning who falls in love with Mary. The other is Wade Dempster who tries to get his hand on their home by getting Clairborne drunk. One of the townsfolk finds out of Dempster's way of buying the land and tries to stop it. Dempster defends himself by shooting him and next blames Manning for the murder. It doesn't take long before Manning is found guilty and receives a life prison sentence.
