This romantic drama finds Charley Riley (Eugene O'Brien) as a chivalrous young man who is always willing to help a damsel in distress. His uncle (George Fawcett) is a prominent politician who longs to teach his nephew about his unabashed heroics. Alice (Nancy Deaver) hides in Charley's apartment to escape her pursuers. When she ends up spending the night, the girl's father arrives in the morning and points a revolver at the surprised hero. The man demands that Charley marry his daughter. Once they are wed, Alice reveals to Charley that her brother had embezzled $5,000 from her fiance. Charley gives her the money to repay the man before being called to an abandoned house. He is chased by a gang of shady thugs before he finds he has been the victim of a ruse concocted by his uncle. Alice, although part of the initial deception, really loves Charley and finally confesses her involvement in the scheme.
