  • Jack Desmond is superintendent of a mine in Mexico. The quarter's shipment of thirty thousand dollars in gold is ready, when Romero, Mexican, demands tribute. Jack refuses to pay it. He is shot and his sweetheart, Brenda, goes for help. Meanwhile Gen. Cardillo has left his wife and child in neutral territory. The child escapes from its sleeping mother and runs into the woods. Jack, wounded, but trying to get back to civilization, meets the child and manages to carry it to its home. The mother is intensely grateful. Brenda has been captured by the soldiers and thrown into prison. Later Jack is captured and stood up to be shot. Gen. Cardillo, learning that Jack is the man who brought back his child, saves his life, merely putting him in the prison. Romero decides to get rid of both Jack and the general. He plants a charge of powder in the cellar and escapes. But Brenda has appealed to Uncle Sam before the Mexicans caught her, and the U.S. soldiers attack the prison and rescue her and Jack just in time before the place blows up.
