As described in a film magazine, following his performance at a Montana rodeo, cowboy Lem Beason (Hart) accepts the invitation of Chicago banker Gregory Collins (Hall) to come to the city and take a position of watchman at the bank, recent robberies having resulted in the death of the last two watchmen. Carl Bruner (Mayall), Collins' trusted lieutenant, is the instigator of the thefts and sends Beason to the underworld on a false clue, planning his quiet murder. However, Beason comes out unscathed and convinced of Bruner's duplicity. Collins's petted daughter Janet (Mitchell) parades the westerner for the benefit of a gay house party, and Rose (Novak), a poor relation, aids Beason in his escape. He resigns his bank job, but stays in town one more night, knowing that there will be another attempted theft at the bank. He captures Bruner and his aides and exposes them to Collins. Collins buys Beason a ranch in the west and he convinces Rose to share it with him.
