As described in a film magazine,[4] wealthy Dorothy Calender (Valli) withdraws a string of pearls from her uncle's keeping to assist her brother with a debt. A detective is following her about and with the aid of others almost succeeds in getting his hands on the pearls. Billy Kirkwood (Rawlinson), who thinks Dorothy is a thief but wants to save her from her folly, secures the pearls from the escaping crooks and restores them to the young woman. Later it develops that the detective is dishonest and the whole gang is locked up, while Dorothy declares her love for the man who saved her property.
