Lionel Barrymore was the only exception when it came to wheel-chair villains.
The story has Ted Haley (Charles Starrett) riding to his brother's ranch and finds him dying from a knife wound. The brother names Sol Rothert (Robert Middlemass) as his killer. Leaving the house, Ted doesn't notice a mysterious man watching him, but he sees a rider gallop up to the house and enter, and Ted rushes to investigate. The rider, later identified as Adele Rothert (Peggy Stratford),the young, eastern-raised niece of Sol Rothert, stage a gun battle with Ted and gets away.

Ted rides to the nearest town, where he gets into a clash with a couple of tough characters named Moose Nelson (Lew Meehan) and Ike Britt (Ted Oliver)before the sheriff intervenes. The sheriff tells Ted that Rothert could not have killed his brother, as Rothert has been a cripple for years, unable to move from his wheelchair. It isn't long before everybody but Ted, Adele and the Sheriff knows that Rothert is indeed the killer, leader of the gang and not a cripple. So the only unknowns left for the audience is the identity of the mysterious rider, and who ends up being two undercover lawmen working for the Cattleman's Protective Association, and trying to help Ted, in spite of his efforts to put them in jail.
