Darrow (Antonio Moreno) is a wealthy young man who uses his money to help educate slum children. However, when he helps out a young woman, Florence (Helen Chadwick), who has been thrown out of her home, it draws the wrath of both Betty, his fiancée (Margaret Greene), and Tony (Armand Cortez), a gunman who loves the slum girl. Betty invites Florence to a social dance, hoping to embarrass her, but instead Florence is a hit. Tony's anger is then expressed a bit more violently -- he tries to kill Darrow. But Florence sees him climbing a pole to Darrow's office and takes a shot at him. He falls to the ground, and Darrow's revolver is found at the scene, so he is arrested for the crime. Things look mighty bleak until another slum dweller, Sailor Bill (Frank Conlan), is fatally wounded in a fight. He admits to both possessing the gun and the shooting. Darrow finds happiness not with his snobbish girlfriend, but with Florence.
