This melodrama begins with a pair of orphan brothers who are separated when one is adopted by an American couple and taken from England to the States. Years later, Ned, the brother left behind (Carlyle Blackwell) grows up and travels to America to find his brother, John (George Anderson). Accompanying him is his invalid wife, and when he can't find honest work to pay for a doctor, he joins a gang of bank robbers. The police capture him and throw him in jail. Meanwhile, his wife is helped out by Alice Randolph (Jean Shelby), who happens to be John's philanthropist wife. Even though she has no idea that the woman is her sister-in-law, she borrows $1,000 from Henry Collins (Frank Beamish), a client of her husband's, for medical services. When Ned gets out of jail, she also helps him get work with her husband. But John finds out that Ned is a jailbird and fires him. Meanwhile, Collins has decided that he wants Alice to pay him back with her favors, and the only way to help her, Ned decides, is to steal money from John to pay him back. But John catches him with the safe open and has him arrested. At the station, they finally discover their relationship to each other and head home just in time to save Alice from Collins.
