Wealthy Helene Chadwick decides to discharge her social obligations by doing charity work in the slums. Upon arriving in the tenement district, Chadwick is appalled by the lack of safety measures taken in the building of those tenements. Her discovery is particularly dispiriting because her own father owns the firetrap buildings. With the help of likeable but lazy millionaire Charles Delaney, Chadwick tries to institute much-needed construction changes. At this point, however, the story goes off madly in another direction when the heroine is kidnapped by a female crime boss, forcing Delaney to go to her rescue in wicked old Chinatown.
