In a Mexican border town, reward signs are posted for a mysterious bandit known as the Kinkajou. Also in the town is a mysterious Gringo, Jim, who wins the affections of Rita and the hatred of General Ravinoff. Rita refuses to believe the lies of the rascally Ravinoff about Jim until, at a party given at his villa, he offers proof that Jim is a Texas Ranger assigned to arrest her brother (rumored to be the Kinkajou). Broken-hearted, Rita dismisses Jim, but later she saves his life from assassins who lie in wait for him. Ravinoff constructs, on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande, a palatial barge, in which he operates a gambling resort, and one evening he stages a party, hoping to impress Rita. Jim appears in disguise, and his explanations bring renewed faith and love. Rita diverts Ravinoff while Jim frees the barge, permitting it to float to the American side. There, Jim unmasks Ravinoff as the Kinkajou, clearing Rita's brother, and a wedding follows with the Texas Rangers officiating.
