Bob Terry (Ben Alexander) works for John Borden (Ralph Morgan), the father of his girlfriend (Kay Linaker). Someone embezzles a large sum of money, and John blames Bob. So Bob is sent to prison, where he stays for five years before he is exonerated. When he gets out, John, feeling guilty, trusts Bob with his safe. But Bob plots revenge and shows his former cellmate, Todd (Edward Acuff), and a gangster named Carmody (Charles Brokaw) how to break into the safe, framing John for embezzlement.
