Synopsis

The East Side Kids, a group of rough and tough but honest youths in New York, become unwittingly involved in a murder when they rescue Sylvia from her abusive stepfather Morley, who is killed shortly thereafter by racketeer McGaffey for stealing his money. Sylvia hides out at the gang's clubhouse, but East Side Kid Danny is arrested for suspicion of murder when he returns to her apartment to get her clothes. McGaffey forces Mugs, president of the East Side Kids, to agree to break into a silk warehouse in exchange for a chair leg with Mugs's fingerprints, which he used to hit Morley during Sylvia's rescue. In the meantime, not even his policeman brother can convince Danny to reveal what he knows about Morley's death. Rusty, a former East Side Kid who is now a sailor, returns to the club for a visit and helps to interpret the morse code that Sylvia's grandfather, a paralytic, relates using his eyes to tell the group that McGaffey is the murderer. Mugs reveals how McGaffey has tried to extort him, and while the Kids go to the silk warehouse, Rusty and Sylvia find the police and tell them the whole story. The Kids converge on McGaffey and his men after they back a truck into the warehouse, and after a brawl, the police arrive. Skid, a former club member gone wrong, confesses that McGaffey killed Morley and the criminals are arrested.
