Proof that Anna Q. Nilsson had completely recovered from a recent injury was offered by her willingness to tackle a dual role (so to speak) in Her Second Chance. The story opens in the Florida Everglades, where swamp girl Constance Lee (Nilsson) shoots a man while protecting her home. Shipped off to prison for two years, Constance "re-invents" herself upon release, dressing to the nines and rechristening herself as Caroline Logan. Judge Jeffries (Huntley Gordon), the young jurist who sentenced Constance to jail, is bowled over by her "new" personality, and, failing to recognize her, falls in love with the girl. Constance/Caroline strings Jeffries along, intending to wreak vengeance against the moonstruck lad. On the verge of utterly destroying Jeffries, the heroine realizes that she can't go through with it -- she's fallen in love with the poor sap.
