Anne, a girl of the slums (Virginia Pearson), is unjustly sentenced to a year in prison by Judge Marcus (William T. Hooker), and when she gets out, she swears revenge. She gets the judge to take her into his home as a companion for his wife (Alice May) and then promptly proceeds to seduce the judge. Since he is now running for governor, Anne has a good chance of ruining him, but she finds that she has fallen in love with him and can't do it. Instead she admits to her plot and then marries reformed ex-convict Graves (Jack Hopkins).
