His wife Dorothy (Lisabeth Hush) has heard it all many, many times before, and wants Paul to give it all up for a normal job and life. The problem is money - Paul and Dorothy have none. Besides being on credit with 'Pop' Tullett (Broderick Crawford), the local general store owner, they live in one of his cabins.

After a tragic accident, Paul tries to get Chris to come to his senses, but is it too ...
