The wealthy and beautiful Juanita Holland leaves the comfortable surroundings of her home in the North and journeys to the Cumberland Mountains to educate the illiterate mountaineers. Finding herself in the middle of a fierce feud between the McBriars and the Haveys, Juanita urges the clan members to end the violence and settle their differences in the courtroom. She and clan leader "Bad Anse" Havey fall in love, and under her influence, he convinces his followers to let the law punish the murderer of Jeb Havey's father. After one of the McBriars is found guilty and hanged, "Old Milt" McBriar swears that his family will obtain revenge and organizes a party to go after Bad Anse. When they shoot the young man, seriously injuring him, Juanita seizes a rifle and opens fire. Fearing that Anse will not recover, she marries him that night, but he eventually regains his health.

In December 1917, Hiller and Wilk announced that they would distribute this film, at that time entitled The Woman Eternal, for the independent market. The film appears in release charts at that time as a state rights release of the Advance Motion Picture Corp., the film's producing company. The film was reviewed at the length of eight reels in March 1918, and reviewers noted that the company's intention was to cut the film to six reels before its release. Pathé Exchange, Inc. obtained the distribution rights and released the film under the title Her Man on September 8, 1918. No confirmation of an earlier release under the earlier title has been located. One review from June 1918 referred to the film as The Eternal Woman. In a news item, Ralph Ince, whom all sources credit as director, stated that his brother John, who wrote the scenario, deserved credit as director. One source called the producing company Producers and Exhibitors Affiliated. One review credits the "'Young Milt' McBriar" role to Cecil Chesterton. Some scenes in the film were shot in the Cumberland Mountains, according to a news item.
