Universal star Herbert Rawlinson has the lead in this rather unusual romantic crime drama. James Harrington Court (Rawlinson) is a crook whose talent as a safecracker is well known. But one night he breaks into the wrong house and is discovered by the owner. The owner, however, doesn't think that Court is a robber; instead, he believes that he is the old sweetheart of his fiancée, Velma Gay (Edna Murphy). The man, believing that Velma has been untrue, angrily forces Court to marry her at gun point. The couple begin a new life together, and with Velma's encouragement, Court decides to try earning an honest income for once in his life. Unfortunately, Velma seems to be the only one who wants Court to go straight; all his old associates want him back doing what he did best. But Court sticks to his resolve, and, as a result, finds himself up against a powerful political boss. He has to fight four huge thugs before winning out over his foe.
