Gladys Hulette stars in this romance about a girl crook determined to -- as the title implies -- go straight. The gang Gilda Hart belongs to believes she is merely a coward, but no matter, she heads for Hollywood with her aunt (Lillian Leighton). While Gilda gets a job in a bank and becomes secretary to the president, John Rhodes (Owen Moore), her aunt and another woman, Mamie (Ethel Wales), try to break into pictures. Unfortunately, they only manage to harass the hard-working actors (including Anita Stewart and Larry Semon in cameos). Rhodes falls in love with Gilda and proposes, but she turns him down because of her dark past. The gang shows up in Hollywood and attempts to get their former associate to rob the bank. When she refuses, they figure she is planning to do it on her own and intend to beat her to it. Gilda knows what they are up to, so she replaces the money with paper, and takes the real cash to Rhodes' mother (Mary Carr). Rhodes is captured in the attempted heist, and the police follow Gilda, who goes looking for him. The whole gang is captured, and Gilda admits she was once one of them. Then she tells Rhodes to call his mother, who affirms that Gilda gave her the bank's money. Rhodes forgives Gilda's past and they wed.
