Synopsis by Janiss Garza

Minor Universal Studios star Gladys Walton plays a lion tamer in this circus picture. Jim Horrigan (Rex de Roselli) and his daughter, Kitty (Walton), have a circus lion act. Jim is injured, and Kitty is left to carry on alone. The circus' manager, Hayden Delmar (William Welsh), annoys Kitty with his attention. She's also not thrilled with Bradley Caldwell (Roscoe Karns), the son of a millionaire who always seems to be drunk whenever he is near her. To get away from Delmar, Kitty leaves the circus and works in vaudeville. Caldwell continues to chase after her, and his father (C. Norman Hammond) offers to pay her if she can tame him as well as she tames her lions. So Kitty goes to work and eventually makes a man out of Bradley. When he has a relapse, she goes back to the circus. He follows her and shows up just in time to save her from an attack by Delmar. Old man Caldwell is so happy with Kitty's work that he's glad to accept her as his daughter-in-law.
