In this drama, set in New York City, a boy from a good family takes a bad road when he becomes a heroin addict. As a result, he ends up serving 6-months in jail. Upon his release, he begins working for his father. Just as his life begins to really shape up, the boy meets his old dealer for a drink. The father, assuming the worst, tosses the boy from his home. In desperation, the destitute lad begins selling the drug himself. He cannot handle being around the drug and soon finds himself shooting up again. Because the gang doesn't want addicts selling their drugs, they kick him out. The boy has nowhere to go, no money, and nothing else to lose, so he returns home. His father realizes he must help his son, or watch him die. He helps him.
