Immigration officer Grant Newbury (Tom Mix) is sent to investigate the smuggling of Chinese immigrants over the Mexican border. Tipped off to Grant’s arrival, the smugglers’ leader, Bullet Bates (Sid Jordan), ambushes Grant — who is then unexpectedly freed by Estelle Halloway (Eva Novak), a young, lost girl he had aided earlier. As Grant flees Bates’ camp to summon assistance, Bates takes Estelle hostage, unaware that she is the daughter of his boss, Jim (John Farrell MacDonald).
This film features some of the earliest aerial photography used in motion pictures.
