Wallace Reid and Dorothy Gish were already screen favorites when they starred on this "Mutual Masterpicture." Dosia Dale (Gish) is a young heiress from Kentucky whose uncle (F.A. Turner) has squandered her fortune. As she comes of age, the uncle realizes that he must get rid of her so he has her committed to a fake insane asylum run by Protheroe. Until she is locked in a barred room, Dosia doesn't realize her peril. She drops a note from the window which winds up in the hands of Ford, a young reporter (Reid). Ford figures out where the note came from and has himself committed to the same asylum by pretending to be a naval officer who is suffering a nervous breakdown. He locates Dosia, but Protheroe and the uncle figure him out and lock him up with Dosia. Ford's pal Cuthbert notifies the police and when they arrive, a shoot-out at the asylum ensues. The home catches fire and Ford and Dosia escape over the roof. Both Protheroe and the uncle are shot to death, and there are hints of a romance warming up between the young people.
