Michelna Libelt (Vivian Martin) is an immigrant orphan who finds a friend in newsboy Blackie Moyle (Paul Willis). She dresses up like a boy and becomes a newsie, too, and in their spare time, the two pals play around with some clay that an artist gave Blackie. Eventually, a thug, Tip Morgan (Charles West), discovers that Michelna is a girl and tries to attack her. Blackie comes to her rescue, but he is blinded when Morgan hits him between the eyes. Michelna takes the figurines that she and Blackie molded to an art show, and hers, called "the Trouble Buster," become a big hit. Nevertheless, she gives the credit to Blackie. It is marketed the same way Billiken dolls were a few years earlier and earns a fortune. With the money, Blackie gets an operation to restore his sight. While all this has been going on, Morgan has been coming around and threatening to reveal that Blackie did not make the sculpture unless Michelna pays up.
