As described in a film magazine,[2] John Regan's (Tilton) daughter Esther (Traverse) assumes management of the Regan Steel Mills upon her father's death. The Associated Trust endeavors to gain control of the mills, but meets with rebuff at the hands of Esther. Darwin McAllister (McDaniel), employed by the Trust to get Esther to sell out, finds himself in love with her and resigns from the Associated. He is employed by Miss Regan and thus arouses the jealousy of Dan Cullen (Deeley), a dishonest employee of the Regan plant. Dan attempts to block the shipment of a consignment of steel, but Darwin and a group of loyal employees rout the Trust's hired bullies and get the shipment through.
