In the story line, Hutchins as Sugarfoot travels south of the border with Army Col. Cyrus Craig (Robert Warwick) to reclaim from a cemetery the body of Craig's military son, who had been killed in an Apache attack. While there, Pepe Valdez (Jay Novello), the owner of the orphanage, attempts to persuade Craig that Chico is actually Craig's grandson, but Craig had never been informed that his son may have married and until the end of the episode he doubts Chico's parentage.
