Trapper Ingor Oleson rescues an Indian maiden, Still Water, who was kidnapped in the Dakota Territory by two drunk whites. She is the niece of the Chief of a Sioux tribe he has traded with. Together for weeks as he nurses her, they each must face the hard fact that their dreams of a life of a white and an Indian together is impossible. The Army is relocating Indians from the Dakota Territory to make room for white pioneers. The Indians, not wanting to go, are fighting back. A brave from her tribe, who wants her as his wife, has vowed to kill whoever has taken her. Ingor can't let his actions threaten his brother Lars and his family homesteading a day's ride to the west. Avoiding the two drunks seeking revenge for their lost prize and the Army rounding up Indians, Ingor must return her safely to her uncle and face the brave. Can the couple save their dream in the midst of hardship and hate?
