Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Jack Mulhall stars as Jerry Marsden, the wastrelly son of millionaire milk wholesaler J. Marsden Sr. (George Fawcett). After bailing Jerry out of one scrape too many, the elder Marsden cuts off the boy's allowance and tells him he's on his own. While looking for work, Jerry is hired by wealthy Roger Whitney (Crauford Kent) to serve a brief jail term on Whitney's behalf. Locked up in a minimum-security prison especially designed for "celebrity" convicts, Jerry is ensconced in a luxury cell and waited on hand-and-foot by the supplicative guards. He enjoys the occasional visits from Whitney's pretty sister Ruth (Alice Day). Entering into a business deal with another of the millionaire prisoners, Jerry strikes it rich, pleasing his dear old daddy to no end.
