Buck Randall (Buck Jones), a happy-go-lucky cowhand on the ranch owned by Tom Wilson (William Walling), is in town and heads for the Red Front Saloon where, in compliance with a town ordinance, he is ordered to give up his gun but refuses. Escaping the altercation with Marshal Joseph Slyde (Russell Simpson) and his chief deputy, Alex Frame (Walter Miller), Buck seeks shelter in the Marshal's house at the edge of town. He meets Mary Slyde (Mary Doran), the Marshal's young, pretty, charming and unhappy wife and they are attracted to each other. While Slyde and a posse are combing the countryside for Buck, Frame is left behind to protect Mary and, the posse is barely out of sight, before Frames is forcing his unwanted attention upon her. He is shot and Mary, in shock, thinks she did it as does Buck who has returned to the house. When the Marshal and his men arrive, Buck takes the blame for Frame's death and is held for murder.
