Alcoholic Lottie Mead (Claire Trevor) bursts into the home of Ralph and James Birdwell (Robert Sampson, Patricia Smith), the couple who have been caring for Lottie's daughter ever since the girl's mother deserted her. Now Lottie declares that she will take the girl away from the Birdwells unless she is given a 25,000-dollar payoff. When the couple refuses, Lottie cooks up a kidnapping scheme with a seemingly dishonest detective named Phil Ames (Biff Eliott) -- who turns out to have an agenda of his own.
