An attempt to show that the land is everything, this simple plot fails. A young farmer marries a former showgirl used to the finer things in life, and he gives her a young heifer. Her free-spending lifestyle not only causes them to lose money but makes him forget his work also. As their
life crumbles around them, they fight and she rides off. She takes a tumble off the horse and dies. Now, he is not only broke, but also guilt-ridden over his dead wife and forced to work for a neighbor.
