Warner Bros. later inherited First National in a merger and remade the film in 1930 as Those Who Dance, which exists at the Library of Congress. It is not known whether the 1924 film currently survives, and it may be a lost film.
When a young lawyer (Baxter)'s sister is killed in a bootleg liquor-related accident, he seeks justice by joining the prohibition force. A young man (Agnew) is wrongfully suspected of a crime, so his sister (Sweet) seeks evidence to set him free. The lawyer and young woman pose as a couple to infiltrate the underworld.
