Grace Merrill (the vampy Louise Glaum) works as a shill in a gambling hall. Her five roommates are even less honestly employed. One of them, Elsie Brown (Patricia Palmer) commits suicide because her main squeeze, Frank Norwood (Edward Martindel) has left her. Elsie's small town mother (Gertrude Claire) comes to the city and meets Elsie's roommates. But Mother Brown's faith and purity are so compelling that the ladies of the night reform. Grace, in fact, gives up her affair with a married man -- even t hough she really loves him -- to go live with Mrs. Brown in the country. While this scenario sounds laughingly naive today, in its era it was considered a message film with a good moral.
