Storyline
The story deals with a young man who is sent to prison on the evidence of one whom he thought was his friend. The hero is ostracized by the townfolk after his release from prison. This forces him to leave town and incidentally leads him towards success. The friend whom he went to prison to save proves false and bribes the father of the hero's sweetheart to persuade her to marry him. Having successfully intercepted all of the letters of the missing lover, he feels all is going according to plan, and proceeds to plan the wedding. The bride is all ready, and the bridesmaids are in waiting, the preacher arrives — what happens next is the climax of the picture.
