"A Canadian lumberjack nostalgically recalls his past as he listens to a record of the song his sweetheart used to sing him - "Annie Laurie". The singer of the record travels to Western Canada for her health, making a stop at Golden, and the lumberjack saves her from being robbed by two crooks. He then discovers that she is the old sweetheart and she sits down to sing the old song for him."

One of thirteen one-reel films commissioned by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company to promote the colonization of Canada (source: Library and Archives Canada).
