Synopsis

War buddies Burr Winton and Dave Stewart retreat to Burr's cabin in the Canadian Northwest after Dave helps Burr pay a gambling debt. During the winter months, Jacques Fachard, a French trapper, and his daughter Manette, who have eluded the Mounted Police, seek refuge in their cabin. Fachard dies of a bullet wound, after having persuaded the men to care for his daughter. Both fall in love with Manette; Burr, deeply in love for the first time and eager to marry her, is furiously jealous and threatens Dave. Food shortage makes it necessary for Burr to seek aid. Manette, after having been defended by Burr, starts after him in the storm; but Dave stops her and brings his friends back and leaves them to their happiness.
