A prospector nicknamed Burning Daylight strikes it rich during the Alaskan Gold Rush, but after he's cheated out of his fortune by crooks on Wall Street, he becomes a scoundrel. Moving to Oakland, California, he buys property, and sets up utilities and public transportation systems through overbearing and shady tactics. He becomes self-indulgent with drink and food. And then, for the first time, he falls in love.
