Belle Bennett and William V. Mong play a pair of veteran crooks who decide to "go straight" when their daughter is born. When the girl reaches maturity, however, Mong tries to indoctrinate his daughter (played as an adult by Marion Douglas) into a life of crime. Bennett reluctantly goes along with the scheme, though to save her baby from arrest she busily rushes around returning the items that the father and daughter have stolen. Meanwhile, the daughter begins to stray from the "family business" when she falls in love with the son (William Bakewell) of a wealthy manufacturer. Surprisingly, the story never comes to a genuine resolution and merely stops after 7 reels.
