Iron Justice was about as bleakly realistic as a British film could be back in 1915. Julian Royce plays Martin Brand, a clerk who enters into a fraud scheme with his employer O'Connor (Cecil Fletcher) and is sent to prison as a result. While Brand serves his term, his daughter Phylls (Marguerita Jesson) falls under the influence of O'Connor's none-too-scrupulous wife (Sydney Fairbrother). Before she quite knows what is happening, Phyllis has become a streetwalker. Top billing in Iron Justice was bestowed upon Fanny Tittell-Brune, cast in the largely passive role of Martin Brand's wife Marguerite.
