As described in a film magazine review,[4] Billy, the son of William Craig, rushes to the rescue of Linda Harper when she is almost hit by a taxi. He finds out that she is the daughter of an old employee of his father. Billy wins her friendship and love. When Billy's father refuses to give him more money to spend, he thinks it is a great joke to take it from a pile on his father's desk. John Harper is accused of stealing the money and is sent to prison. Billy confesses his guilt, but his father has him shanghaied to prevent any shame to his mother. Billy returns to find his mother dead and Harper at home ill after serving his prison sentence. Harper's only request is that the truth be kept from Linda. Linda is on her way to see Glenn Hayden in a desperate attempt to borrow money for her father. Billy rescues her from a man's attentions and they decide to get married immediately.
