Motion Picture News warned that this melodrama, which was sentimental to the point of "hokum," would be better appreciated in the small towns than in the sophisticated big cities. Danney Moore (Tom Santschi) is a cop who is well loved in the neighborhood he patrols. He suffers a disappointment when he is passed over for a promotion because he stopped to help an injured little girl, allowing a gang of thugs to get away. But Moore gets another chance when he finds out that some crooks are planning to rob Griffen's bank. He gets permission to lead a raid, and he is able to capture the robbers. For his good work, Moore is promoted to sergeant, but he has paid an unexpected price -- he is forced to arrest his daughter, Mary (Gladys Hulette), as an accomplice. But Mary's sweetheart, Jack, the banker's son (Francis X. Bushman Jr.), is able to prove her innocence and get her released.
