Director Francis Ford miscast himself as the romantic interest of Peggy O'Day in this rags-to-riches drama. Patsy (O'Day) is the scrub girl at a boarding house, but her singing talent draws the attention of an old musician. She gets a job in the chorus of a burlesque show and quickly works her way up the ranks. She falls in love with Dr. Blake (Ford), but Lewis Lester, a crook (Philip Ford), decides he wants her after a fire destroys the beauty of his own sweetheart. Lester tricks Patsy into believing that Blake has cast her aside so that she will turn to him. She discovers that Lester has lied, and, feeling badly about the whole situation, goes to the country to forget. Dr. Blake follows after her. Lester, who is being pursued by the authorities, escapes to the country and creates even more complications. Eventually everything is straightened out and Patsy is united with her doctor. Philip Ford, incidentally, was the director's son.
