Ordered out of town for gambling, Raymond Chapelle, former priest and the scion of a good family, stops to visit his dying pal, Canuck John Blondin, who requests that Raymond deliver a bag of gold to his mother in the village of Marleau. On the train to Marleau, Raymond meets a young priest, Father Aubert. Arriving during a violent storm, Raymond finds his way to the Blondin home where he is met by Canuck John's unscrupulous brother. When he refuses to release the money to the brother, a fight ensues which awakens Madam Blondin from her sleep. In the darkness, she seizes a gun and fires, killing her son. Raymond escapes and, coming upon the prostrate body of the priest, who had been hit by a falling tree, the gambler exchanges clothes and identities with the holy man. Madam Blondin accuses Raymond of the killing, and the priest, who is suffering from amnesia, is mistaken for the gambler and arrested. After taking on the identity of Father Aubert, Raymond begins to feel deep contrition for his sin and finally confesses to the Bishop. They are about to reveal his story to the authorities when Madam Blondin, dying, confesses that she shot her son.
