Synopsis by Janiss Garza
The plot to this Vitagraph four-reeler was tired, even in 1915. James Morrison plays Ralph Brooks, who is seduced away from his nice sweetheart, Julia Dean (Dorothy Kelly), by the sophisticated Rita Reynolds (Eulalie Jensen). Rita happens to be married, and on the night she is stealing some of her husband's money out of the safe, a burglar, Red Hall (George Cooper), enters the house. Mr. Reynolds (Charles Eldridge) suddenly arrives home, and Red watches Rita kill him. He plans to blackmail her, but she calls the police. Just then Ralph arrives. Red sneaks off and when the cops show up, and Rita pins the murder on her lover. Ralph is sent to prison for life, but he gets away during a riot. With the help of Tug, a sympathetic inmate (Anders Randolf), he is able to force Rita into confessing to her husband's murder. Ralph is exonerated and reunites with his mother (Louise Beaudet), and with Julia.
