Secret agent George Johnson (Coit Albertson) recalls the story of two orphan girls to a pair of cohorts at a Paris cafe. The virtuous Angel (Jewel Carman) is adopted by crooks who teach her to steal, while Evelyn (Virginia Valli) is the criminally inclined girl adopted by a wealthy family. When Angel steals a watch from a passenger on the "L" train, the man refuses to press charges and enlists her help in his confidence scheme. Evelyn is engaged to marry the promising author Robert Ellington (Leslie Austen), but the writer falls for Angel. Ellington is scheduled to leave on a ship but gives his ticket to Johnson, the secret agent and con man. Angel watches tearfully as the boat pulls away before Ellington reveals he loves her.
