Like just about all of James Oliver Curwood's stories, this one takes place in the far north. When smallpox breaks out in a small Canadian settlement, Jan de Bar (James Morrison) is assigned the task of burning down the plague-stricken cabins. In one of them he finds a little girl, Jean, and decides to take care of her. He sends her away to school, and when she returns as a pretty young lady (played by Dorothy Kelly), he falls in love with her. Unfortunately, so does Mountie Lieutenant Walker (George Cooper). But Jean, it turns out, loves Jan back, and when the two men are about to leave on a long trek, she leaves a note confessing this in what she thinks is Jan's backpack. It turns out to be Walker's, and he believes the note is for him. While they are on their journey, a bandit steals their food and guns and Jan breaks his leg. He urges Walker to leave him behind and return to the post and Jean. Walker does, and finds out that Jean meant the note for Jan. He puts! together a rescue party and they find Jan still alive. Jean tells him to his face that she loves him and they are finally united.
