Silk Stocking Sal (Evelyn Brent) is caught robbing a home by its owner, Bob Cooper (Robert Ellis). Instead of turning her in to the police, he offers her money to go straight. His offer falls on deaf ears until Sal is touched by Cooper's sympathetic mother (Virginia Madison). She quits the gang and goes to work in Cooper's office. Cooper has an argument with his senior partner over some bonds, and the next day the partner is found murdered. Circumstantial evidence points to Cooper as the killer and he is convicted. Sal is convinced that Bull Regan from her old gang (Earl Metcalfe) is the one responsible for the killing and she sets out to prove it. She rejoins the gang, and through her manipulation and feminine wiles, she manages to wheedle a confession from him. Cooper is about to be executed and Sal has to make a mad dash to save him. She's successful only because the wire to the electric chair has shorted. Now that he's a free man, Cooper marries Sal.
