Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

In this drama, a devoted woman takes the rap for her yellow-bellied lover's crime and gets sent to Australia's Parmatta Pententiary. When her boy friend finds out where she is, he moves to Australia to get in touch. He doesn't succeed and soon finds himself marrying the governor's daughter. Meanwhile, the girl is eventually released when she marries an upstanding settler. When she learns that her old lover has married another, the distraught lass takes off and attempts to start a new life as a nightclub singer. In the end, she winds up choosing to return to prison. Her good husband again comes to her aid and saves her from prison.
