To save her father from financial ruin, Margaret Laird (Marin Sais) is forced to break off her engagement with Clive, a young lawyer (True Boardman), and marry a gambler by the name of Deering (Thomas Lingham). Deering runs a gambling den in his mansion and treats Margaret cruelly, while Clive works his way up to district attorney. After one foiled attempt, Clive raids Deering's establishment. Deering believes that Margaret was responsible for the raid and tries to kill her. But his crooked partner, Ramon, double crosses him and calls the police. Clive reaches Margaret just in time and Deering leaps to his death from a balcony.
