This six-reel film, made by Norman Studios in Jacksonville, Florida, features Laurence Criner as the fighter ace, Captain Billy Stokes, who returns to the United States after World War I, with Kathryn Boyd, as Ruth Sawtelle, his admirer and flying pilot. Her character is based on African American aviator Bessie Coleman. It is an inspiring film that is based on real people that fought in World War I.
