In this rather artificial drama, Shirley Mason plays Constance Bailey, a rich girl who refuses to marry her sweetheart, Bruce Von Griff (Alan Forrest), until she has done some good in the world. She finds work as a teacher on New York's Lower East Side, and one day Bruce shows up in a policeman's uniform -- he has joined the force partly to keep an eye on her, and partly because he wants to do some good in the world himself. He keeps proposing to Constance, who keeps turning him down. She helps a little boy (Pat Moore) and his blind sister (Helen Stone). Meanwhile, Bruce is trying to track down a thief (Otto Hoffman). Coincidentally, the same crook attacks Constance, so Bruce gets to save his sweetheart and collar the wanted man at the same time. Eventually Constance figures she's done enough good and accepts Bruce's proposal.
