Synopsis

Jerry Harris leaves prison after seven years, determined to get revenge on Jim Blake, the man who framed him by turning state's evidence. At Blake's house he finds Molly, the woman who lived with Blake, and she hides him from the police after they follow him from prison. The two fall in love and make a pact to find work and "go straight." Jerry seeks shelter at a mission, and stays to become the owner's helper. Blake, who is down and out, arrives at the mission and Jerry decides to kill him, but before he can, the mission is blown up and Blake dies in the explosion. Molly and Jerry are married in the rebuilt mission and plan to run it with the help of Jerry's two rehabilitated prison friends.
