Plot – Eric Stanton is forced to get off a bus because he doesn't have enough money to get to San Francisco, which is about 150 miles away. The man walks until he reaches Pop's Eats and meets a group of men that are looking for the waitress, Stella. Apparently, every man in the city is in love with her. This is how the story of Eric Stanton starts.
In order to win the beautiful Stella over, Stanton is forced to marry another woman, a rich orphan girl. When, the same day of his marriage, he goes to visit the waitress, he finds her with another man, and the next morning he discovers that the girl has been killed. Stanton is accused for the murder and he'll remain a fugitive for a while until, one day, he returns to Pop's Eats. After carrying out some investigation, he now knows the truth behind Stella's murder.
