Hazel Farron (Madge Kennedy) is a chorus girl with high moral standards -- a novel concept to 1920 audiences. Even though the season is over and she is broke, she refuses the attentions of a rich banker (Willard Louis). With her last two cents, she goes to a bakery and winds up meeting David Rogers (Kenneth Harlan), the head baker. He gives her a job, and together they start a bread line to help the poor. But David falls ill, and to save him, Hazel goes to the banker and offers herself to him, if only he will pay for his cure. He does, but when Hazel goes to the banker's apartment to keep up her end of the bargain, she finds David -- and a clergyman. The banker wasn't such a bad guy after all, and Hazel and David are able to marry. This film was based on a Saturday Evening Post story by Octavus Roy Cohen.
