Marjorie Rambeau stars in this crafty detective drama. Gerald Buckland (Robert Elliott) is a handsome society man who finds himself attracted to a pretty girl (Rambeau) on the street. He watches with curiosity as the shabbily dressed young woman accepts a diamond necklace from a man and then hides it. Later, he's even more surprised when he is introduced to her at a friend's home. Her name is Rachel Davison, and she entertains the guests by picking their pockets, then giving them back their belongings. Buckland becomes convinced that she really is some sort of pickpocket or thief, and that she has an accomplice -- a man who seems to follow her around constantly. But he finds out the truth the night Harry Van Santen (Bert Starkey) throws a party.
