With the Cherokee Strip to be opened up to settlers as part of the Oklahoma land rush, a ranch hand helps his employer move his ranch out of the territory. Meeting up with a kind young woman and her family, who are waiting for the rush to begin, he falls in love with her and decides to try and make a claim on his boss's former ranch. When he heads back to check for strays on the ranch, he is accused of being a Sooner and is thrown in jail. Our ranch hand must now try to clear up the misunderstanding and get out of jail before the land rush commences and his rival gets the ranch.
