Synopsis by Janiss Garza

This melodrama features Bryant Washburn and Mabel Forrest. Kane (Sidney DeGray) is a conservative, upstanding member of his community who keeps a tight rein on his daughter Dorothy (Forrest). Denied of the usual fun had by most girls her age, Dorothy rebels and heads for the city. When she runs out of money, she tells the Alaska Kid (Washburn), who misunderstands her motives and puts her up in the apartment of the questionable Lottie Bird (Kathleen Kirkham). Lottie convinces her to attend a party attended by gold-digging young women and lecherous old men. One of the guests turns out to be Dorothy's own father. He begins to berate her for her presence but she points out that he is the guilty party. When the Kid realizes that Dorothy is not the jazzy babe he thought she was, he falls for her. They dash back to Dorothy's home, beating her father there. But Dorothy figures that her life has been miserable enough so she keeps her father's secret from her mother (Martha Franklin), and instead forgives him.
