Dependable light comedian Johnnie Walker stars in this comedy from F.B.O. Brian O'Brien (Walker) is a pugilist who wants to give up the life and settle down. In spite of being offered a bribe to throw his last fight, he wins it in a knockout. But then he finds out his opponent has a sick mother that he wants to take to California, so O'Brien hands over his winnings. This generous move impresses another man, who gives him the money to open up a garage on Long Island. Even though the garage does well, this isn't enough for O'Brien's ambitious young wife (Eileen Percy). She leaves her husband to hobnob with society. O'Brien makes a name for himself when he uses his fists to stop a pair of robbers who have stolen some pearls from a wealthy woman. After the story of his heroic act appears in the newspaper, his wife realizes how shallow she has been, and she returns home.
