Former Follies star Justine Johnston stars in this crime story. Police sergeant Jim Dark (Riley Hatch) is a single father who has sworn to keep his daughter, Jenny (Johnston), ignorant of the world's wicked ways. He refuses to listen to reporter and family friend Pep Mullins (Warner Baxter), who believes the girl would be better off if she weren't so sheltered. It turns out that Mullins is right because Jenny and her equally naive pal, Adele (Helen Raye), get involved with crooks. Adele's encounter causes her to be kicked out of her father's home. She gets a job as a modiste and through her, Jenny meets Pete (Charles Gerard), a Frenchman who is pretending that he is collecting funds for war orphans. He convinces Jenny to pose as his wife to help his cause. She does and is responsible for netting the crook a quarter of a million dollars. The scandal hits the papers and when Dark tracks Pete down, he finds his own daughter with him. Mullins overcomes Pete in a fight, and marries Jenny.
