This drama is set during Prohibition and follows the exploits of a spoiled brat with overly permissive parents. He soaks them for as much money has he can get and then squanders the money in an illicit speak-easy where he has fallen for the lovely singer. Unfortunately, she is a gangster's moll. The gangster befriends the smitten youth with the ulterior motive of using him as the pigeon in a murder he just committed. When his mother learns about the mess, she turns her own son over to the cops. Fortunately, the youth goes before a stern, but kind-hearted judge who suspends the sentence, but not before delivering a serious message. The chastened youth vows to put his hard-drinking, rebellious days behind him and goes on to lead a productive life. Keep a sharp eye out for Bela Lugosi in a small part.
