Letty, a naive, poor young woman, travels to the wind-blown Texas prairie and lives in a dust-bowl town on her cousin's ranch. She takes care of the children, but is disliked by her cousin's wife Cora (Dorothy Cumming) who is jealous of her closeness with her husband and three children. With nowhere to go, she is forced to marry Lige (Lars Hanson), an uncouth, rough cowboy she doesn't love. During a terrific windstorm one night and with her husband absent, she is pursued and nearly raped by Roddy Wirt (Montagu Love), a married acquaintance.
