The hills of California stand in for the hills of Tennessee in this Selig melodrama. While wandering in the tall timbers, a courting hillbilly couple come across a careworn mountain woman. Obviously in great pain, the woman explains that she has been beaten and abandoned by her brute of a husband. The couple takes the woman to the home of the boy's family, where her wounds are tended. The nasty husband shows up demanding his wife's return, but he is rebuffed by the boy's burly male relatives. As the couple looks on in triumph, the battered wife finds lasting happiness in the arms of another mountaineer.
