Duryea plays a thief who plans to steal a jeweled necklace from the mansion of spiritualist Mackay. With the aid of cohorts Capell and Shaughnessy, he pulls off the robbery and obtains the trinket. Duryea's half sister Mansfield is also along for the ride but falls into trouble when

dishonest cop Bradley spots the gang and decides to kidnap her, with the jewels as the ransom. Bradley manages to kill most of the gang, and Duryea hands over the jewels to save her, but the cop kills him anyway. Soon after, Bradley is captured and led off to jail. The best part of the film is the

opening robbery, which is shot in tight close-ups with rapid cross-cuts, but soon after the pace drags and the character motivations become unsatisfying, resulting in a choppy film.
