Jane Novak has a dual role in this Alaskan mining tale. Jean Hersholt not only plays the villain (he spent most of the 1920s playing heavies), he also co-directed the film. College classmates Dave Langdon (Jack Livingston) and Harry Teal (Hersholt) both love Jane Sunderlin (Novak). Teal wants Langdon out of the way, so he engineers a situation which causes him to be expelled. Langdon becomes a drifter and eventually makes his way up to Alaska, where he becomes a partner in a gold mine that is wanted by a big corporation owned by Teal's father. Not surprisingly, Teal winds up in Alaska, as does Jane, and the rivalry is on again. The presence of Faro Kate, an exact lookalike of Jane (probably because she's also played by Novak), complicates matters. Teal tries to get the mine away from Langdon, and when that doesn't work, he tries to implicate him in an attempted murder. The battle between the two men comes to a head on a precipice, and Teal falls to his death.
