Synopsis by Janiss Garza

Irene Fenwick plays the daughter of an old bank robber. She wants him to go straight, but the rest of his gang tell her that her father is dying and they need her help to pull off one more heist so that they can send him to the mountains. So she gets a job as a bookkeeper at the bank they're setting up, but she falls in love with the cashier there (Owen Moore). Someone in the gang finishes her father off, and in retaliation she notifies the sheriff (who happens to be in love with the cashier's sister) of their plans. Even though this wasn't exactly a first-rate feature for Paramount, Owen Moore dressed up his part a bit by basing his characterization of the cashier on John Emerson, an actor famous on Broadway back then. Ironically, Emerson became a film director and writer, but was eclipsed by his wife Anita Loos, while Moore's career was eclipsed by his then-wife Mary Pickford.
