John Carleton (Hoot Gibson) is living a carefree jazz lifestyle, much to the annoyance of his father (Edwin Booth Tilton). When he can take it no longer, Carleton senior sends John to his ranch in the West, hoping that the experience will make a man of him. John's ability to ride a bucking bronco wins the friendship of the cowhands, but trouble's a-brewin' when he falls in love with Beryl King (Marceline Day). Her father (Herbert Prior) is an old enemy of John's father. Although he is ordered to keep off the King ranch, John forges right ahead and fights off his opposition with his fists. Then he boldly dances with Beryl at a function in town. Not only does John win Beryl, he also effects a reconciliation between his father and old man King.
