The old prospector dies and leaves his daughter alone in the uninhabited hills. Two other prospectors come, a young man and an older one. They meet the girl and the inevitable happens; they love her, the young man with a poor and noble love, the old man with the black primitive passion of desire. The older one tries to accomplish his purpose through treachery and cowardice, but he only meets a just death, while the manly youth and the courageous girl move on to the life of love and happiness.
