Dr. William 'Will' C. Martin rescues Lydia Turner from the advances of the drunken women's undergarment salesman, Charlie Dorsey. Lydia is the daughter of the Medicine Bow bank president and Will with his accomplices Charlie and Jenny are working a con. Will is posing as an oil geologist exploring for oil in the area. The plan is to induce the locals to invest their own money along with the outside backers Will supposedly has. However, a national banking crisis creates a run on the Medicine Bow bank and ends all hope for the con. Will always the one with a new idea proposes a plan to Judge Garth and the bank president to save the bank while giving his group another chance to reap a huge payoff. But complicating matters is a real blossoming relationship between Lydia and Will.
