As naïve chorus girl, Sunny Duane (Elaine Hammerstein), finds herself in a load of trouble in this comedy-melodrama. She is befriended by the older, more experienced Jean Valjean (Kathlyn Williams) and meets society man Eugene Durant (Elliot Dexter). A wealthy playboy asks Sunny out to dinner, but he is found murdered later that night. Suspicion falls on Sunny, but she disappears after marrying Durant, who believes he is dying and wants to leave her his fortune. He survives, although he is left a helpless cripple. The police finally track Sunny down and are about to arrest her when an old sweetheart shows up and confesses to the crime. Durant discovers that he is able to walk again when the crisis inspires him to take action. Director Marshall Neilan must have had a little time on his hands when this picture was being made -- he shows up in a bit role as a driver.
