The Rag Man proved to be a popular release, so Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer quickly put together this sequel. The studio's brand new starlet Joan Crawford stars alongside young Jackie Coogan and old Max Davidson. When we last saw Tim Kelly (Coogan) and Max Ginsberg (Davidson), the ex-rag pickers had struck it rich. But the copper stock in which they have invested takes a dive and they are compelled to go back into the junk business. They take in the penniless Mary Riley (Crawford) as a roomer and she hits it off so well with them that she winds up becoming a partner in their little company. Mary falls in love with Nathan Burke (Alan Forrest), a young broker, but his mother (Lillian Elliott) opposes the match. Eventually it is revealed that Mrs. Burke came from a poor background herself, and her long-ago sweetheart was Ginsberg. After this discovery, she gives the couple her blessings. The copper stock soars in value once again, so Kelly and Ginsberg are back in the money.
