This late FBO Pictures silent was based on a novel by Beatrice Burton. Having lost her family fortune, socialite Lois Wilson becomes the owner-operator of a fancy restaurant. Even while trying to make ends meet, Wilson struggles to keep her wayward younger brother and sister out of trouble. Unfortunately, brother dear gets mixed up with bootleggers, who hide their illicit booze in the basement of Wilson's establishment. Shut down by the Prohibition agents, Wilson is reduced to working as a hostess in a sleazy gambling joint -- the same establishment where her brother was led astray.
