Former silent stars Claire Windsor, John Harron, and Holmes Herbert struggled mightily with a morose script in this low-budget melodrama from producer George W. Weeks. A reader for the Rogers Publishing Company, Annie Frayne (Windsor) successfully campaigns against the company publishing "In Quest of a Virgin," a trashy new novel. The publisher, Bruce Rogers (Holmes Herbert), is so impressed with Annie that he considers making her his assistant, though he abandons the idea once he gets a look at the girl's sordid home life. A dejected Annie attempts suicide, but is rescued by newspaper reporter Ronnie Ross (Harron), whom she eventually marries despite learning that he is the author of "In Quest of a Virgin." But Rogers, who has come to regret his decision, once again proposes that Annie become his assistant. Meanwhile, a jealous Ronnie is arrested for a jewelry heist actually committed by Annie's no-good brothers (Lee Moran and David Callis), and although Annie remains faithful, he refuses to see her. Years later, Annie is about to marry Rogers when she receives Ronnie's newest novel, "Cry of the Soul." So moved is she by the book in general and a touching inscription in particular, that she returns to the reformed Ronnie.
