Tom Martin (Guy Oliver) is the blacksmith of a small country village, and his sweetheart is Mary Brandon (Vivian Reed). But their romance is disrupted when a man from the city, Bennet Gordon (Fred Hearne), comes to teach at the town's school. His sophisticated ways get Mary's attention, which Tom jealously notes. But Gordon's true character reveals itself when a mad dog escapes and threatens a group of school children. He runs away, and Tom kills the dog. But in the struggle, Tom has been bitten, and a doctor informs him that he has contracted rabies. So that he won't be a danger to anyone, he forges a pair of manacles and chains himself to his anvil. Mary, who now fully realizes she loves Tom, goes to him, but finds him dead of hydrophobia.
