SYNOPSIS

In Ontario, Canada, Tom Elliot learns that his younger brother Phil has sold their gold mine without consulting him. Phil has fallen in league with a criminal, Martin, who works for jewel thief Jim Bartlett. Phil and Martin are seen fleeing the scene of a robbery, but the Royal Canadian Mounted Police mistake Tom for Phil. Out of brotherly devotion and hoping his gesture will move Phil to reform, Tom does not refute the charges and is sentenced to prison. Tom learns from Phil's girl friend, Doris, however, that he has not reformed, and after Phil's activities become known to the Mounties, Tom is pardoned. This allows Tom to fulfill his life-long dream to become a Mountie, which pleases Doris, whose brother Danny is one as well. Tom and fellow Mountie, Mac, rescue Danny from a gang of jewel thieves and they discover Bartlett murdered in his cabin. Martin orders Phil to kill Tom after Tom learns that Phil was involved in Bartlett's death. Phil sets out to carry through Martin's instructions, but he hesitates and is captured by Mac. Repentant, Phil helps the two men track Martin, who shoots Phil before he himself is killed. Phil falls dying into Tom's arms and Tom assures him that things are "tops" between ... +
