Mary MacLaren stars in this pleasant romantic programmer. Forger Bill Butters (Thomas Jefferson) swears to his daughter Peggy (MacLaren) that he will go straight -- after one more job. But the cops are onto him and he gets caught. Judge Farrell (J. Barney Sherry) sentences him to prison, and Peggy finds a place nearby so that she can visit him regularly. While working behind the counter of a soda fountain, she meets Dick Van Courtland, a college boy (Harold L. Miller). They wed, which angers his mother (Dorothy Hagen), who had chosen society girl Clara Ramirez (Dagmar Godowsky) as his mate. However, Dick's guardian -- the same Farrell who convicted Peggy's father -- likes his new sweetheart because she reminds him of his own daughter, who was kidnapped as an infant. Clara, who still hopes to snag Dick, discovers the identity of Peggy's father and plans to let Farrell know. But Butters finds out about her scheme, breaks out of prison, and forges a letter which claims that Peggy is Farrell's long-lost daughter. Farrell knows the note is a forgery, but he decides to let the matter drop since he really cares about Peggy.
