Irene Rich was one of Warner Bros.' new stars when she made this drama. Poverty-stricken singer Carol Drayton (Rich) attempts suicide, but she is saved by Rose (Louise Fazenda), a woman of the streets. They go to eat at a disreputable cafe where they are joined by the wealthy Gordon Duane (Frank Elliot). The place is raided and Carol is arrested. When she is released and wandering the streets, Carol is approached by Bobby Bleecker (Creighton Hale), who wants her to sing underneath the window of his sweetheart, Aline Sturdevant (a pre-stardom Clara Bow). Carol's beautiful voice is heard by Stratini (Marc MacDermott), a famous impresario who offers to teach her. Trouble follows her when Whitney Duane (Ricardo Cortez) falls in love with her and hears gossip about her. Then she borrows money from Bleecker to help Rose, and Aline becomes jealous of the attention her sweetheart is paying the singer. Finally, when faced with the reappearance of Gordon Duane, Carol decides to tell the truth about her past troubles. She is about to go away, but Stratini stops her and admits that he has fallen for her.
