'Stockman Joe, overseer on a station, is in love with Nancy, daughter of Jim Nield. Jim is too fond of whisky, and Joe, for Nancy's sake, tries to get Jim to reform. One day Digger Brown saw Jim draw his yearly remittance and decided to follow and rob him, and in a lonely spot drops Jim by a blow on the temple with the butt of a revolver. He is seen by Joe and his stockmen and Joe starts in pursuit, leaving the men to attend to Jim. An exciting chase ensues, Joe comes up with Brown on the top of a 200ft cliff, frightful struggle on the edge, finally Joe with a well-aimed blow knocks Digger over the edge, shrinking back in horror from what might have been his own fate. Arriving at the foot of the cliff he finds Digger dead and recovers Jim's money. At the house he hands it back to Jim, again begging him to reform. Up to this Jim has been against Joe marrying Nancy but now he relents and says, 'Take her, lad, and look after her, she's a good little gal.' Nancy and Joe wander off towards the lagoon, there'a a sweet little love scene—curtain. Of course this is the bare outline, there are some fine buckjumping pictures, and pretty incidentals, all acted by Burra lads.'
