Lorelei Knight lands a job as a show girl in New York through the efforts of her unscrupulous brother. Her parasitic family soon follows in order to live on her earnings. She loses her job and in desperation marries Bob Wharton, the drunken son of a millionaire, but refuses to consummate the marriage until he reforms. Lorelei meets Lilas Lynn who is planning revenge on steel mill owner Jarvis Hammon, the man responsible for her father's death. Lilas shoots Hammon and Lorelei is implicated. Her brother and his gang blackmail Lorelei's now reformed husband for the crime, but after a turn of events the gang is broken up and all ends well.
