Horatio "Racy" Manly (William Haines) spends his time partying, much to the dismay of his father, Judge Manly (David Torrence). The frustrated judge finally disowns him. Racy befriends a young boy, Mickey (Frankie Darrow), whose father, Big Jim (Sheldon Lewis), is a criminal who is currently behind bars. Racy begins to straighten up and joins the fire department, and, along the way, falls in love with Alice Doran (Dorothy Devore), who lives in the same rooming house as he does. A fire breaks out in the jail, and Big Jim escapes. He goes to find his son, but Alice, who is keeping him in her room, refuses to let him go. The rooming house catches fire, and Racy rescues Alice and Mickey from the inferno. After his heroic actions, Racy is reunited with his father.
