Arthur Trevelyan (Gaston Glass) spends his life partying and one of his revels ends in a wedding ceremony. His father (Thomas Guise) is fed up with his son's carefree ways and disowns him. So when Arthur is accused of a murder and a jewel theft he has no protection and winds up in Sing Sing. Because his wife (Edna Murphy) has been in an accident, she is unable to see him, but his sister Lorraine (Miriam Cooper) fights tirelessly for him, even though it endangers her romance with the district attorney (Robert Fraser). Eventually Arthur escapes from prison, and although he becomes involved in a shooting, a confession by the real bad guy (Eddie Gribbon) saves him. At last he is reunited with his wife and child.
