Synopsis by Janiss Garza

This states rights drama features Pauline Garon and Harrison Ford. Sally Whipple, a thoroughly unconventional young woman (Garon), is wooed by Rudolph Van Alten, a society man who secretly owns a sleazy road house (David Powell). Sally's affections turn to Jimmy Munroe (Ford), a newspaperman who is writing an article about the "average woman of today." The ownership of the road house is revealed and Sally's father, Judge Whipple (Burr McIntosh), insists that Van Alten stop seeing her. Van Alten is determined to have her, so he takes her to the road house where, with the use of some letters, he discredits Sally's dead mother. He convinces Sally to marry him, but one of his former lovers, the jealous Mrs. La Rosa (DeSacia Mooers), blows the whistle on the joint. Sally is trapped in the raid, but her father explains that the letters mean nothing. Mrs. La Rosa kills Van Alten, and Sally finally finds happiness with Munroe.
