Although not a crook herself, Mary Regan (Pinna Nesbit) comes from criminal stock; her father was a top international thief who had her educated in France. As she is sailing for New York, she meets detective Robert Clifford (William B. Davidson). He falls in love with her, and together they enjoy the glamour of the big city. Clifford is not sure if she is an innocent girl or a thief herself, and she comes to be tested through the wiles of a corrupt police chief, Matthew Brady (Emmett Corrigan). By turning on Brady, she proves to Clifford which side of the law she's on. This film was one of producer Samuel Goldwyn's "Eminent Authors" series. It was based on a series of seven short stories that appeared in Metropolitan Magazine by then-noted author Leroy Scott.
