It is about two hoboes who have a sudden change of fortune when they discover that they can buy their uncle's loan company if they can find money. The two head for the horse races in hopes of winning the badly needed dough. There they meet a sultry woman and her sneaky boy friend. When the two connivers hear of the young men's plans, they decide to acquire the business for themselves. The woman wins at the track and buys the company. The hoboes are left back where they started.
