Footloose flapper Peggy Marston (Dorothy Revier) runs away from her oppressive household and right into the arms of Big Trouble. Looking for thrills, Peggy gets mixed up with Maurice and Maxine (Armand Kaliz, Mildred Harris), who use their ballroom-dancing act as a cover for their burglary activities. Accused of theft herself, Peggy is bailed out by her society boyfriend Jerry (Robert Agnew), but is saved from a long prison term only by the deathbed confession of Maxine. Wandering Girls represented one of the last major film roles for Mildred Harris, the ex-wife of Charlie Chaplin. It was scripted by another film comedian of note, Dorothy Howell.
