Gaston Glass stars in this fast-moving melodrama as dashing Parisian pickpocket Bibi-Ri. Filching one purse too many, our hero ends up in a brutal penal colony. Sadistic overseer De Nou (Gustav von Seyfertitz) swears that some day, somehow, he'll send Bibi-Ri to the guillotine. But when this day finally arrives, a red birthmark on his neck reveals that Bibi-Ri is De Nou's own long-lost son. This revelation takes place just in time for a romantic clinch between Bibi-Ri and heroine Zellie (Nina Quartero). Ex-boxer Jack Roper co-stars as hulking prisoner Bombiste.
