Bandit Cheyenne Harry reforms because of the faith placed in him by Molly Young and her father. Soon, however, Harry is lured from the straight and narrow when he meets his old friend Ben Kent and consents to participate in Kent's plan of robbing a stagecoach. During the hold-up, Kent shoots and kills the driver, and before they can escape, the posse arrests both men. About to be hanged for murder, Harry receives a message from his mother notifying him that she is coming to visit. The sheriff takes pity and postpones the execution to allow Harry to deceive his mother into believing that he is an honorable citizen. After she departs, Harry returns to jail only to be exonerated when one of the occupants of the stagecoach testifies that Kent fired the fatal shot. Freed, Harry returns to Molly and a life of honor.
