Corporal McDonald, an Irish soldier and member of the 7th Cavalry, is stationed in the American West. One day he steals and hides a military chest, containing a treasure. After diligently marking the place where he has hid it, he dies leaving two sons Bill and Duke each 50% of the precious map with his wife Isabel at a farmhouse in a desolate area of Texas. Twenty years after the crime, Lieutenant Pollock, among other things is the rejected lover of the widow, continues to investigate the treasure and convinces the heirs, to search for the chest. They are pursued by swindlers, but after many adventures they find the chest. Outsmarting the robbers, they decide to give the treasure back to the regiment. Then a random explosion reveals the presence of abundant oil in the basement of their farmhouse and they are consoled with a lavish income.
