Cast & Crew
Ruth Baird, related to both the Hatfields and Morrisons--two feuding Tennessee families--is in love with Enoch Morrison, who is opposed by her Uncle Cosmo and Cousin Cameron. The lovers go by boat to an island to have their fortunes told by a Negress, and Enoch leaves his gun behind in the woods. Their boat is lost in a storm, and they are forced to spend the night on the island. The next day Enoch is arrested for the murder of Cameron, who is found shot near his abandoned gun; but at his trial he remains silent, fearing to compromise Ruth. The girl determines to defy his accusers, but she is saved from exposure by the announcement that little Dave shot Cameron accidentally with Enoch's gun. Enoch is acquitted, and his marriage to Ruth brings a reconciliation between the families.
