This implausible crime drama had the benefit of Betty Compson's presence: she was best known for playing lady criminals. District attorney Richard Templer (Richard Dix) is trying to solve a drug smuggling case, but to do so he needs to break into the safe belonging to Ralph Dobson (Charles A. Stevenson). He enlists the help of Elizabeth West (Compson), a female crook. With the use of an aeroplane, they kidnap safecracker Jim Hartigan (Theodore Von Eltz) from prison, but he proves to be uncooperative. Elizabeth decides to try her feminine wiles on Dobson to get him to open up the safe himself. Even though Dobson manages to get both Elizabeth and Templer under his power, Elizabeth still manages to get the necessary papers to blow the smuggling ring wide open. And of course the picture isn't complete without Templer proposing to Elizabeth who, we have to assume, has completely reformed.
