There's land speculator's aplenty after Mary Lane (played by Mary Miles Minter) and her cousin Claiborne decide to sell the family land which was recently left to them in an inheritance. Roland Manning, one of the potential buyers, falls in love with Mary but is soon sentenced to hard labor after being framed for a murder which had actually been committed by another speculator, the sinister Wade Dempster.

Oscar Nelson, Mary Lanes former beau, saves the day when he finally admits that he witnessed the murder and identifies the real killer as Wade Dempster. And the happy ending? The land is kept in the family with the marriage of Mary and Roland.
