Cast & Crew
Bob Mannering, the son of the district attorney, is a passenger in a car that is involved in a fatal accident, and he assumes the blame for it in order to protect Diane Graham. John Mannering, Bob's father, refuses to intercede on his son's behalf, and Bob's mother, frantic with worry as she sees her son led off to prison, arranges with Jerome Wallace, a candidate for her husband's position, to create a scandal that will prevent her husband's reelection. Mannering finds his wife with Wallace, and they separate. At a country hotel, Diane admits her responsibility for the accident to Mrs. Mannering, and, after narrowly escaping death in a forest fire and a flood, the women return to the city. Diane confesses to the police, Bob is freed, and the Mannerings are reconciled.
