Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

In this melodrama, a wealthy girl decides to disguise herself and work as a laborer in her father's factory so she can be near her dad and prove to him that she is capable of helping out in the family business. While there, she falls in love with a shipping clerk, and after revealing her true identity, invites him to a party in her father's mansion. During the party, the girl's weaselly brother robs the house safe to get the money he needs to cover his gambling debts, leaving her boy friend to take the rap. Fortunately, by the story's end, he clears his name, marries his true love and inherits her father's business.
