Ware plays the owner of a boarding house who is always willing to help or counsel gangsters and racketeers in trouble. Her foster son, Fairbanks, takes the blame for a murder committed by his girl friend, Dove. While Fairbanks is in jail, Dove tries to have his play produced, resorting to

any means at her disposal. Meanwhile, double crosser Crane is romantically interested in Dove, making it difficult for the couple when Fairbanks is finally released. Ware's gangster friends are onto Crane's plan and discreetly get him out of the way. Ware's performance is the show's highpoint,

making the top name stars seem secondary. The story lapses into sentimentality, but otherwise contains some interesting twists, with some well-placed comic routines. Marshall, a former burglar resigned to being Ware's butler, is particularly charming.
