Although Milton Sills was a leading man in his own right, he also supported many female stars of the silent era. In this crime drama he plays second fiddle to spunky Viola Dana. As "Angel Face Molly" O'Hara, Dana plays a part that is quite familiar to her fans -- that of a girl crook who reforms. Molly escapes when the police close in on the gang she's a part of and she finds a home with Mrs. Rand (Gertrude Claire). Mrs. Rand has a stock broker son, John (Sills), who is too preoccupied to realize that Molly has fallen in love with him. But then John gets involved in a crooked Wall Street deal and his partners frame him. Molly uses her expertise to break into John's safe so that she can steal a document that will save him. Mrs. Rand's influence has a positive effect on Molly, who becomes worthy of winning John's love.
