In this crime drama, a crime lord adopts the little brother of a slain colleague. Later a child-care inspector intervenes, deems the gangster a bad influence, and takes the lad away from him. The gangster is outraged and begins an unequaled crime spree until a local minister's daughter convinces him to reform and get an honest job at the ironworks where she is employed. He does well until the payroll is stolen. Naturally, he is the one accused. Unfortunately, this time, he is innocent. Fortunately, he manages to get it back from his old gang members--the real culprits--and return to the arms of the woman who loves him.
