Mary Brennan, an orphan reared by Nick and Jerry the Gent, two thieves, bears a strong resemblance to Margaret Waring, an heiress. Against her will, Mary is persuaded to go with her guardians to the Waring mansion and impersonate Margaret in the latter's absence. Mrs. Wells's son, George, though at first deceived by the disguise, senses that Mary is not Margaret and falls in love with her. Later, as Mary, Nick, and Jerry are entering the safe, Margaret returns and Jerry wounds her; Mary tricks the police into believing that Margaret is the thief; George sees through the ruse, but protects her out of love. Through a pair of lockets, Margaret discovers that Mary is a long-lost twin sister; thus, the prosecution is dropped and George's proposal is accepted by Mary.
