Brief Synopsis

Gossipmongers, bigots, Babbitts, and hypocrites gather around the cracker barrel to destroy the lives of the innocent. The peaceful Scott is victimized as a result of his unfulfilled love for Hohl's wife, Johnson. Through innuendo and deceit, the yokels drive Hohl to make an unsuccessful attempt on Scott's life in the belief the latter has cuckolded him. During brief intervals of boredom, they also conspire to drive another townsman to suicide.
