During the Klondike gold rush of 1898 the Lone Prospector (Chaplin) seeks refuge from a storm in the cabin of a desperado Black Larson, and is joined by Big Jim McKay. Larson discovers Jim's gold claim and knocks him out, but dies himself in an avalanche. Charlie wanders into town where he meets a dance hall girl Georgia.
