Pigeon Deering (Maurine Powers) is the poor girl from the slums who is witness to a murder in this moral melodrama. She confesses to the crime to satisfy her craving for publicity. Attorney Arthur Beal (Rod La Rocque) successfully clears her name in a much-publicized trial. When Pigeon decides on a stage career, her attorney advises against the idea and fears unfavorable publicity will haunt her. She ignores his advice and Arthur lures her to an "audition" at his country estate. The lawyer hires a man (William Gudgeon) as a crazed "fan" to chase the girl. After her experience, Pigeon is willing to give up Broadway to be Arthur's wife.
