In this Western, William S. Hart plays the Bandit, who is in love with Belle Shields (Hart's frequent co-star, Rhea Mitchell). But then the Sky Pilot (an archaic slang term for preacher) comes to town, and draws Belle's attention. The Bandit realizes that he has lost Belle to the preacher (Robert Edeson), and takes to drink. In the saloon, he gets in a brawl with several men over Belle and is getting a sound thrashing when the Sky Pilot shows up to help him. He not only reforms the Bandit, but Belle, too, and he marries her. A friend of Belle's introduces her to the shady Jack Malone, who tries to kiss her after having a couple of drinks. Even though he is supposed to be behaving himself, the Bandit is incensed by this and he seeks vengeance on Belle's behalf. The two men have a gunfight and Malone is killed. Belle is now able to resume her peaceful life as the minister's wife.
