A naive young girl from the deep south goes to New York with hopes of becoming a designer only to find herself living in a brothel in this silent melodrama directed by the veteran Robert G. Vignola. Marguerite de la Motte played the unfortunate girl, Barbara Pelham, escaping a police raid on Mrs. Kemp's house of ill repute in the proverbial nick of time. Back home, Barbara meets, falls in love with, and marries Neil Heffner (Allan Forrest), a visiting New Yorker. Returning north with her new husband, Barbara is confronted by Neil's influential father (William V. Mong, one of Mrs. Kemp's clients, who denounces her as a whore. In tears, Barbara locates Mrs. Kemp (Louise Dresser), who explains the misunderstanding to everyone's satisfaction. Anna May Wong appears briefly as one of Mrs. Kemp's "girls."
