Charlie, an escaped convict, steals the clothes of a bathing clergyman. Arriving at a remote rural railway station, he is mistaken for the new pastor the community is awaiting. He endeavours to live up to the role, with all its hazards, and foils the attempts of a former prison cell-mate to rob his kindly landlady and her beautiful daughter. Exposed, he is ridden out of the town by a kindly sheriff who allows him to escape across the Mexican border.
