The Deserter, shot in the style of a silent comedy from the 1920's, takes place during the American Revolution in the late 1700's. A loyal British drummer accidentally drops his canteen into a stream while trying to fill it. A British officer sees him chasing his canteen and mistakes it for his trying to desert the British army by running away into the woods. The officer quickly orders two soldiers after him. When the two redcoats catch up with the "deserting" drummer, things go from bad to worse for him.
