In this exploitation drama, a spoiled little rich girl is impregnated by an orphan and encounters difficulty because she wants it aborted and the boy wants to marry her. When her powerful father hears about the mess, he gets the boy put in jail. There the hapless youth is beaten by a cruel police sergeant, the same one who used to abuse him at the orphanage. Later a young girl, another inmate, gets paroled and helps the youth find a lawyer who tries to convince the irate father that the boy intended to do the right thing. Unfortunately, the attorney is too late; the boy has escaped from jail. The panicked girl steals her daddy's gun, heads for the orphanage and forces the boy to accompany her to a nearby swamp where they are found by the angry townsfolk. Tragedy ensues.
