Storyline

Unhappy with her shotgun marriage to Southern aristocrat Arthur Heatherway, Valerie Marchmont leaves her new husband and, after giving her infant daughter to a Virginia family, goes to Alaska to work in a dance hall. Years later, the daughter, Adrian Gardiner, wants to marry Richard Carver. Richard's father Robert, refuses them to marry because Adrian cannot provide any information about her parents. Following a hunch, Richard goes to Alaska to find the mother Adrian never knew, but just after locating Valerie, he is shot by saloon owner Jim McNeil. When Adrian and Robert go to Alaska to be with Richard during his recuperation, Robert recognizes Valerie as the wife of his old friend Arthur. As a result, he approves of the marriage, but the celebration accompanying the news is cut short when Valerie and Jim kill each other in a fight. Written by Pamela Short
