Synopsis

An interfering mother-in-law forces Nita St. George to leave her husband and child. Years later, Nita runs a successful speakeasy, and her children believe she is dead. Her daughter Jean Austin dates artist Byron Crosby, and although Jean's father and grandmother strongly disapprove, she meets him one night at Nita's speakeasy. Nita has waiter Herman listen in on the conversation, aware that Byron is a notorious lady's man. When she hears that they have left for his apartment, Nita follows them. That night, Byron's jealous lover Mona kills him and frames Jean for the murder. Nita meets Jean leaving the apartment and, taking the blame for the murder herself, is jailed. After Nita's sentencing, Jean confesses to her lawyer boyfriend, and the district attorney entraps Mona into confessing. Nita is then released and returns to her club, while Jean returns to her boyfriend, still unaware of Nita's true identity.
