Douglas Kenyon (Elliott Dexter) is a confused bank clerk who wakes up the morning after a party to find chorus girl Marcia Walsh (Pauline Garon) in his apartment. He was the victor in a card game who won the privilege of escorting the girl home. Although she innocently spent the night on the sofa under the watchful eye of his housekeeper, Douglas is fired by bank president Joshua Carrington (Burr McIntosh). Carrington is the grandfather of Douglas's fiancé Jean (Betty Blythe), who refuses to pass judgment on Douglas until she hears his side of the story. Douglas is hired by the philanthropist Oliver Blair (Robert Warwick) and soon uncovers financial inconsistencies about Carrington. Jean leaves home after an argument with her stubborn grandfather and takes a job as a chorus girl. She soon falls prey to the lecherous advances of theater-producer Horace Fleming (Lowell Sherman). Douglas defends her honor by battling the brute in a thrilling rooftop fight sequence in this romantic drama.
