The hardships faced by a widow and her eight-year-old son on a rugged Canadian ranch provide the basis of this gripping outdoor adventure. She lost her husband to a forest fire. To help her run the ranch, she hires a handy man, a handsome, but taciturn fellow who has known much tragedy, who works hard for her. The woman's son resents him, and when he learns that his mother is planning to marry him to quell ugly rumors in town, the youth is most unhappy.
