This drama was "personally produced" by film star Betty Compson. Berenice Arnold (Compson) spends her time trying to keep her family happy. This is easier said than done -- her brother, Jimmy (Richard Rosson, brother of the film's director, Arthur Rosson), is a gambler and he steals 80 dollars that his father (Harry Duffield) was responsible for. Berenice sets out to get the money back, but winds up causing a scandal because of her association with Trix Ulner, a gambler and thief (Lon Chaney). When she can only get part of the money from him, she goes to Frank, the owner of the gambling hall (Frank Campeau), but his response is to make a pass at her. Ulner takes pity on the girl and decides to come up with the sum by committing one more robbery. Jimmy is involved in the theft, and he is shot and killed. Berenice manages to get the money, saving her father's name, and the grief of her brother's death is lessened by a happy romance.
