Gerald Morely's father commits suicide, leaving a note blaming his despair on a stock swindle perpetrated by John Randall. Randall denies the charge and is himself murdered by Tom Bennett, the real culprit. Bennett frames Jerry by having Deagan (the butler) plant the murder weapon in a way that makes Jerry look guilty. Posing as her protector, Bennett persuades Randall's daughter, Gloria, to marry him, although Jerry also falls in love with her. But Jerry is arrested, tried for murder, and convicted of killing his own father. He escapes on Gloria's wedding night and arrives in time to overhear her admit her love for him and Bennett drunkenly confess to Randall's murder.
