As described in a film magazine,[4] Mary (Dalton) is the wife of Jim Bowen (Coxen), a trusted cashier for insurance brokers. John Boland (Barrows) is a district leader and the keeper of a cafe frequented by Alan Perry (McCullough), the wastral son of Bowen's employer. Perry obtains Bowen's endorsement on a fraudulent check and Bowen is arrested, convicted, and sentenced to five years imprisonment. Mary believes her husband is innocent and, suspecting Perry, she applies with Boland to be a singer in his cafe. Boland secretly loves her and hopes that she will obtain a divorce from her convict husband and marry him. Perry becomes infatuated with her and one night follows her home. Meanwhile, her husband has escaped from prison and seeks refuge in his home. Boland, warned of Bowen's escape, notifies the police and the home is surrounded. Boland arrives to find Mary struggling with Perry, and when he attempts to rescue her he is struck down and apparently killed by Perry. Threatening to turn him over to the police for murder, Mary extracts a confession of the fraud from Bowen. The police break into the house and arrest Perry, while the recovered Boland becomes surety for Bowen.
