Cast & Crew
A Mexican Rurales officer named Carlos returns home to find his younger brother Juan has lost the family ranch to a scheming woman named Consuella, to whom he has given their mother's ring. Deeply ashamed, Juan murders Consuella's partner Andres and then commits suicide. Carlos returns to headquarters to learn from a beautiful señorita named Dolores that one of his young Rurales, Ramon, is also involved in a family dispute. Carlos, remembering his own tragedy, is sympathetic and helps reunite the family only to discover that bandits are threatening Ramon's home and that Ramon is in love with Consuella, who is now working with Señor Clark. Carlos disguises himself as the messenger Pancho, enters Clark's hideout, and learns Clark's plans to steal Ramon's family ranch, which is sitting on a valuable oil deposit. Carlos's true identity is discovered, but he still manages to send a signal to the Rurales, who ambush Clark and his men before they can attack Ramon's home. Consuella is exposed and arrested, and Carlos gives his mother's precious ring to Dolores.
