Mississippi melodrama starring Barrymore as a tough saloon owner in love with Logan. He proposes to her, but she is in love with Barrymore's rival, Delaney. One night the bar is invaded by Lewis and his gang of cutthroats and a fight breaks out. Together, Barrymore and Delaney fend off the

roughnecks, gaining new respect for each other. Soon afterwards the river overflows and threatens the community. Seeing that Logan really loves Delaney, Barrymore allows them to escape the flood in a small boat while he drowns trying to save his saloon. An unremarkable early talkie with only

Barrymore's performance to recommend it.
