A French seller of music machine rolls and occasionally a singer Jacques Gardel learns from Maitre Jerome Quilleboeuf that he has inherited an oilfield located in Big Bend Texas. Disguised as showmen, Roderick and his two daughters Sylvia and Rose, help Gardel and Jerome clean up Big Bend from the terrible "Black Riders" who are controlled by the banker in Dawson City. They end up in possession of their oil inheritance and the banker and his gang are sent to jail.
