They come across a man who has been murdered, and they take his body back to town. The sheriff arrests a young man named Tom Doniphon (O'Brien) for the murder. Tom is innocent, but he has no alibi and the evidence against him is strong. He is sentenced to death, but he escapes from prison and goes on the run. Tom travels to a nearby town and meets a young woman named Mary Blake (Borden). Mary is a schoolteacher, and she is immediately drawn to Tom. She helps him hide from the law, and they eventually fall in love. The law eventually catches up to Tom, and he is forced to go on the run again.
