Vivian Martin played Nell Serviss, a beautiful young girl from the mountains that was engaged to Jim Serviss, who is the leader of their clan. She meets a stranger at the Rutherford farm and falls in love. The stranger is in their mountains searching for radium in rocks. Someone lights the Serviss farm on fire and the stranger is falsely accused. Everyone is mad at the stranger (who at this point is revealed to be a Rutherford) but Nell says she wants to marry him so that no one will kill him. In the end, Nell chases after Jim to tell him that she lied and really wants to be with him.
