Janet Trevor, a convent novitiate, agrees to exchange places with her twin, cabaret dancer Lucy Trevor, who believes that she has killed politician John McBride. With her gentle manner, Janet achieves some success as a performer and falls in love with McBride when he recovers from his wound. Restaurateur Alan Graves tries to implicate McBride and Janet in the murder of Toni Lorenz (to which Ramez, a hunchback, confesses) and forces a confession of narcotics addiction out of Lucy, but it is revealed that Graves bribed Lorenz to leave the country. Janet finds happiness with McBride, and Lucy finds peace as a nun.
