Marcin Asher plays Henry "Pushcart" Wilson, who has parlayed his tiny streetcorner operation into a thriving business concern. Hobnobbing with the 400, the widowed Henry falls in love with beautiful but treacherous divorcee Mona Vincent (Hedda Hopper). Meanwhile, Henry's daughter Mary (Helene Chadwick) gets stuck on handsome socialite Frank Clayton (Jack Mulhall), whom the predatory Mona would like to get into the sack. Mona takes Mary aside and promises to dump Henry if Mary will do the same with Frank. Upset by all this, Mary tries to kill herself, whereupon both her father and her sweetheart rush to her rescue, leaving Mona out in the cold.
