Although Nelga Petrona (Julia Swayne Gordon) moves through society, she is in reality the leader of a gang of thieves. He doesn't know it, but her son, Ivan (Garry McGarry), isn't really her son, either -- as a child, Nelga stole him from the burning house of Judge Harmon (Harry English) during a heist gone wrong. Now that he is grown, he falls in love with Judith Harmon (Zena Keefe), who was adopted by the judge after the loss of his boy. They elope, and when they return, Nelga (rather unwisely) gives Judith stolen jewelry as a wedding gift. Detective Jim Harrigan (Leo Delaney) sees her wearing her present and traces it back to Nelga. He breaks up the gang, Ivan's true paternity is revealed, and Nelga swallows poison.
