Synopsis A movie about an orphaned teenage boy who, enraged by his brother's death, goes on a rampage on the ranch where he works, accidently starting a fire and then fleeing on a horse. Cleared of charges brought against him, he nevertheless is sent to a Boys Industrial School, which is little more than a juvenile prison.
