Hap Connors, not Conners(Ken Maynard)is an escaped convict looking for the man who framed him into a prison sentence.He runs into a prison companion, known as "Old" Frisco(Lafe McKee)who broke out a few days earlier than Hap. They hear some shots, reckon it is only some deer hunters, but it is a stage holdup engineered by Jim Blount(Frank Mayo) and staged by his chief henchmen "Bull" Legal(Charles King.)A worried Blount has heard about Hap's escape and tells Legal and his other henchmen that he will double the state's reward offer to the man who brings Hap to him---dead. Hap picks up a pair of slippers on the trail and at the next ranch meets the girl to whom they belong; Ruth Warren(Frances Dade),the ranch owner who gives him a job.At a town dance, Hap meets Ruth again and she tells him she is to be married the next day to Blount. Blount confronts Hap, calls him an escaped convict and Hap draws his guns and makes an exit through a window.Outside, Legal has been planted to shoot Hap ...
