Based on the stories of author Bret Harte the film takes place in America’s Wild West of the last third of the 19th century. Thousands of people rushed to the California gold fields in pursuit of enrichment. Among them was Gabriel Conroy, a man absolutely helpless in the world of business. When fountains of oil started gushing on his plot of land, the local moneybags Peter Damphy decided to appropriate the land, and succeeded in it by blackmailing Conroy’s wife and his former mistress Julie.
