This minor Columbia effort is a cautionary fable against alcohol abuse. Despite the efforts of a pious minister, two pretty sisters -- played by real-life siblings Marjorie and Priscilla Bonne -- are led astray by city slicker John Miljan. Hoping to have his way with the girls, the villain invites them to a party and spikes their lemonade. The girls' outraged father kills the rapacious Miljan but manages to cover his tracks at the murder scene. Things take a sorry turn when an innocent young man is placed on trial for the murder -- and the girls' father is selected to serve on the jury!
