Chorus girl Rosa Carillo (Carmel Myers) finds herself in dire straits when the troupe she works with is disbanded and her last fifty dollars is stolen. Artist Billy Leeds (Earl Rodney) offers to take care of her, but she's leery of his proposition. Instead she finds work with an Italian grocer, Tony Bonchi (Edwin August). One of the other ex-members of the troupe has Tony arrested on a trumped up charge. Rosa returns to Billy and offers herself to him if only he'll get Tony out of jail. He agrees and sets a meeting time. When Tony gets out of jail he sees the note from Billy and jealously storms over there himself, but he finds Billy with his girlfriend, Maria (Leatrice Joy), who also happens to be Tony's long-lost sister. Rosa then enters and there is a happy reunion for all. This drama was a typical program feature.
