Melodrama starring Chandler as a starving waif who decides to break a store window so that she'll get thrown into jail and be able to eat. Things don't quite work out as she planned when sympathetic cop Bickford gives her a free meal and sets her up with a job as a dancer in the Follies.

Though Bickford's interest in Chandler seems purely professional, she falls deeply in love with her savior and grows angry and frustrated when her attentions are not reciprocated. To get attention, Chandler dates sleazy gigolo Meeker, who tries to bed her in his apartment. She scrambles just

before the point of no return and leaves. Soon after, Meeker is found murdered (another of his lovers, Methot, did the deed) and all the evidence points to Chandler. Bickford, of course, has to arrest his protege, but he eventually clears her name and soon they are married.
