The Test of Devotion takes place in the 1850s in Texas and features a colorful cast that includes outlaws, missionaries, and politicians. The hero is a young man who exhibits archetypical selflessness as he tries to rescue his true love, Arabella, from a greedy and corrupt young politician. A teenage outlaw joins him as a guide and teams up with a resourceful girl who works at a hotel. Although the kids have a lot of friction with each other, they try to overcome a plan against Arabella by asking the Governor for help. The Governor’s wife and children are not as straightforward as they seem! Some of them take a lot of interest in other people’s affairs.
