The city crime syndicate pays off the local political machine in order to operate its high-class brothels in the open. Two syndicate men recruit new girls from the street. Picking up Laura, they take her back to the brothel before they realize that she isn't a prostitute, and then they hold her captive to protect their operation. The madam of the house, Ezmeralda, takes a special interest in Laura. She keeps the girl to satisfy her private desires. Ricky and one of the syndicate men realize that Laura doesn't belong in a brothel, and they try to help her escape. They are caught together and taken to the cellar to be murdered. Ricky catches their captors offguard. After a struggle, Ezmeralda and her henchman are left to die, while Laura and Ricky make their escape.
