This comedy-drama was adapted from the play by Charles Klein. Maggie Pepper (Ethel Clayton) is an outspoken young salesclerk who is taking care of her sister-in-law's child while she is serving time for shoplifting. Maggie has just turned down a marriage proposal from salesman Jake Rothschild (Raymond Hatton) when she meets Joe Holbrook (Elliott Dexter), the store's owner. She mistakes Holbrook for a man looking for a job and tells him to stay away from the company. Instead of being angry, Holbrook admires her spirit and realizes she actually has some good ideas. Although he is engaged to another girl, he begins to see that Maggie is the better choice. Nevertheless, she winds up being discharged because of her co-workers' jealousy. The sister-in-law gets out of jail and returns to her old ways. Maggie is determined to keep the child away from her and accepts a job offer in Pittsburgh. There is an attempt to take the child away from Maggie, but Holbrook comes to her rescue. Finally, he convinces her that they are meant to be together.
