~Plot Synopsis~
After committing murder, Hugh Garth (fine character actor Russell Simpson) becomes a fugitive from
justice. He takes his younger brother, Pete (Cullen Landis) and the boy's nurse, Bella (Mary Alden)
from England to the wilds of Canada. For the next fifteen years, he makes a living as a trapper with
Pete selling the skins. Although Bella does everything she can for Hugh, he bullies and mistreats her.
One day, he finds Sylvia (Pauline Starke) wandering in the snow. The pretty actress has gotten lost
and become temporarily blinded from the snow. Hugh brings her to his cabin and weaves heroic tales
about himself, while disparaging both Pete and Bella. Sylvia, who considers Hugh her savior, eats it all
up until her sight returns. Then she discovers that Hugh is an ugly old man who is wanted by the
Mounted Police. She turns to Pete and they fall in love. Hugh's jealousy abates when he realizes that
Bella has been there for him all along. This picture was adapted from a Red Book serial by Katherine
Newlin Burt.
