Plot

Based upon a summary in a film publication, Jim Montogmery (Meighan) escapes from Sing Sing prison and goes west to start a new life under the name Jack Nelson. He becomes superintendent of a large mill and falls in love with the owner's daughter Molly (Wilson). He tells her of his past life and she believes that he is innocent, so they are married. Prison officials pardon Old Bill (Everton), who planned Jim's escape, as bait in their attempt to recapture Jim. Detective Mike Kearney (MacQuarrie) finally lands his man but Jim places his fingers in the mill machinery to spoil the tell-tale fingerprints. Later Old Bill wins a confession from the crook that actually did the crime for which Jim was sentenced, leading to a pardon for Jim.
