Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Mae Marsh stars in this society/crime drama, which rates just a tad above your average programmer. The unscrupulous Arthur Montrose (J. Barney Sherry) handles the finances of Mrs. Whitney Carter (Julia Swayne Gordon), and of his ward, orphan Marion Bates (Marsh). Because he wants complete control over her fortune, he commits Marion to an insane asylum. She escapes and gets a job as a cook for a group of men who turn out to be crooks. When she discovers their true identities, she wants to leave, but first agrees to accompany them to the Spanish Inn, where she escapes. Montrose makes a last ditch, unsuccessful attempt to kidnap her. Ultimately she winds up at the Carter home, where she falls in love with Robert Carter (Norman Kerry). Robert is finally able to expose Montrose's dirty dealings. For his efforts, he winds up with Marion.
