William Henry John was a small time rancher. But when his wife died in a riding accident, he became a broken man.
He turned to drink. At first his neighbours were helpful and sympathetic, but Henry John soon became the town drunk and ignored by all. Then one day his life changed. He saved the life of a young woman who he thought was his dead wife.
She thanked him and gave him a kiss on the cheek. From that day forth, William Henry John became a changed, if disturbed man.
