Lily Gibbs (Anna Q. Nilsson), who has led a life outside of the law, works with fake spiritualist Dr. Joe (George Majeroni). But when they plot to rob kindly Mrs. Wade (Jane Jennings), the old lady takes Lily under her wing, and the girl begins to give up her mercenary ways. A murder is solved and Lily ends up with handsome -- and honest -- Jim Corling (Earl Metcalfe). Because of its story of a crook's redemption, this picture was compared to The Miracle Man, which was a hugely successful silent film. While it wasn't quite Miracle Man quality, the performances of the cast -especially Nilsson -- made it worthwhile.
