Hated by his blacksmith father because of his crippled arm, Amos Deming grows up with a keen spiritual insight and a talent for making toys for children. Emily Preston, who lives next door to the Demings, is ostracized by the community because her brother is in jail, but Amos is able to break down her wall of bitterness. When Preston is freed, Krieg tries to implicate him in the murder of Dodd, a lumberman, and threatens Emily with dire consequences if she should talk. Answering Emily's calls for help, Amos struggles with Krieg and miraculously finds his arm cured. Stunned, Krieg stumbles outside into the waiting arms of the law, and Amos receives love and acceptance from his father and Emily.
