Small-towner David Warren (Gaston Glass) is forced to leave his community after accidentally causing the death of a local cop. He makes a beeline to the big city, where he gets mixed up with criminal gang. David falls in love with female crook Mae Andrews (Gladys Brockwell), who feels the same way towards him. To prevent Warren from pursuing an unlawful career, Mae pretends to throw him over in favor of the gang leader. After returning, disillusioned, to his home town, David finds out through the grapevine that Mae still loves him, and a happy ending -- one which must have sorely taxed the ingenuity of the film's screenwriter Arthur Hoerl -- finally transpires.
