Barbara Bedford had just recently been promoted to star status when she made this drama -- it was only the second film in which she was billed above the title. Sudan (Edwin Booth Tilton) is treasurer for a company run by King (William Scott) and Corday (Harry S. Northrup). His daughter Mary (Bedford) is an actress on her way to being a star, but when she receives word that her father is accused of a theft he did not commit, she drops everything to prove him innocent. The two owners of the company are Mary's suspects, and under an assumed name she allows herself to be romanced by the womanizing Corday. Through the use of her wits she is able to prove that he is responsible for the missing funds and makes sure he is sent to prison. King, it turns out, is innocent of any wrongdoing, which is just as well because he and Mary have fallen for each other.
