This low budget program feature had a few lively twists. Playwright Anthony Moore (Harold Miller) refuses to even consider his secretary and fiancee, Mildred Garson (Arline Pretty), for the lead role in his latest crook drama. Angered by Anthony's stubbornness, Mildred asks her brother and sister to help her fake a robbery at Anthony's home. Her brother enlists the help of an underworld leader known as the Fox (Tom Santschi), and they plot to have Mildred play the role of thief. Her scheme takes a frightening turn when real crooks show up and kidnap her. The crooks take her down to Chinatown, where she finds shelter with pious Chinese philosopher Chong Wo (Noah Beery). After the whole incident winds up in the papers and threatens to ruin Mildred's name, Moore goes to Chinatown and has to fight Chong Wo to rescue Mildred. The real thieves are finally captured, saving Mildred's good name, as well as her relationship with Moore.
