After divorcing her worthless husband, Dora Tompkins (Ellen Cassity) finds herself destitute. One day, her little daughter, Marie (silent child star Baby Marie Osborne), has a dream about Jack and the Beanstalk and when she awakens, she decides to find a giant with bags of gold, like her dream. So she climbs up the fire escape of her building, and although she doesn't find Jack, she does find Jim (Jack Connolly), a prize fighter who was once in love with Marie's mother. Marie's friendship with Jim brings the former lovers back together. Dora promises to marry Jim if he gives up fighting. He does, but then Marie falls off the fire escape, and her injuries require the services of a very expensive specialist. So Jim steps into the ring once again to win the purse that will pay for the operation. After Marie recovers, the new family goes to live in the country.
