Virtuous Ann Hardy (Olive Borden) manages to land a job running the roulette wheel in a busy gambling emporium. Soon, however, Ann quits when she finds out the house -- and the wheel -- are crooked. Gambling boss Ted Wells (Huntley Gordon), impressed by Ann's integrity, falls in love with her, much to chagrin of Wells' ex-mistress Yvonne (Seena Owen). Seeking revenge, Yvonne arranges for Ann to pay a visit to the apartment of rapacious lothario Silk Oliver (Ernest Hilliard). When Silk attempts to rape the girl, she shoots him in self-defense, winning a courtroom acquittal by the skin of her teeth. Somewhat shaken up by all this, Ted promises to forsake gambling permanently if Ann will agree to marry him.
