As described in a film magazine, Rev. Robert Martin (Tooker) is an ex-minister who has lost his faith because of his wife's faithlessness, and taken up a life of crime as head of a band of pickpockets masquerading as religious workers who ply their trade in the wake of a traveling carnival company. He tries to keep the true nature of his work secret from his daughter Julie (Shearer), but she learns the truth while traveling with his band for a week. One by one the members of the band are regenerated through a renewal of their faith. Stephen Gregory (Miller), the last of the band to find solace in faith, tries upon a wager to induce his friend Mary Forrest (Dwyer) to leave the man she married while he is under arrest and to go with him.
