Four major serial stars -- William Desmond, Helen Holmes, Grace Cunard, and J.P. McGowan -- were featured in this minor crime melodrama produced by Jesse J. Goldburg for the Independent Pictures outfit. After being captured by T-Man Jack Blaisdell (Desmond) and sentenced to 20 years of hard labor on a counterfeiting rap, Tiger McGuire (McGowan) is sprung from jail by his old gang. Vowing to get even with Jack, Tiger kidnaps the young man's fiancée, Helen (Holmes), bringing the girl to his hideout, a fancy yacht owned by Lucy Carlisle (Cunard). Jack, who has been given 24 hours to catch McGuire by Helen's father (Alec Francis), the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, discovers the whereabouts of the yacht and manages to rescue Helen in the nick of time. Holmes and writer-director McGowan were husband-and-wife at the time.
