Dell Henderson does a slick job of directing this independently produced underworld programmer in which, for once, the girl saves the day. Dick Manning (Gaston Glass) is the assistant district attorney and his boss (Lafe McKee) gives him the job of tracking down a gang who has committed a series of murders. While Manning is visiting with his sweetheart, Helen Grant (Dorothy Drew), the gang kidnaps him. With the help of her German shepherd, Helen trails the crooks to their lair. To infiltrate the gang, she dresses up in men's clothes and passes herself off as a dame called Chicago Ann. The gang's leader, Robert Killifer (Stuart Holmes), is attracted to her, which angers his girlfriend. With the help of a sympathetic member of the gang, Helen manages to escape and notify the cops. They raid the lair and arrest the crooks. Manning is saved and unites with Helen.
