SYNOPSIS

In order to help her poverty-stricken family, Jonnie Consadine, a strong-willed young woman from the Blue Ridge Mountains, comes to the city and takes a job in a mill, while her uncle, Pros Passmore, continues his endless search for a lost silver mine. One of the mill owners, Gray Stoddard, who wishes to improve the working conditions at the mill, takes an interest in Jonnie, to the chagrin of Shade Buckheath, a loom hand who had hoped to marry her. When Jonnie's boardinghouse owner, Pap Himes, learns that Pros has discovered his lost mine, he and Shade beat the old man into unconsciousness and steal his silver. Pap then marries Jonnie's mother and puts the children to work in the mill, which deeply hurts Gray, who erroneously imagines that Jonnie approves of Pap's actions. After several adventures in which the lives of both Gray and Jonnie are threatened, Gray learns the truth about Jonnie, his future wife, and Pros's mine is restored to the Consadine ... +
