~Plot Synopsis~
Lois Hartner, the daughter of crook Michael Hartner, is well trained in the art of burglary and takes
pride in it until she is saved from drowning by an unidentified man. Although her deep admiration for
the man has awakened in her a sincere desire to reform, she reluctantly agrees to help her father steal a
set of pearls that State Senator George Bayard plans to give to his fiancée, Dorothy Burton. George
catches Lois at his safe, and, recognizing him as the man who saved her life, she confesses her mission.
During their conversation, Ralph Burton, the governor's wayward son, enters the house and steals the
jewels, and although Lois is accused of the theft, George believes her innocent. Because of George's
involvement with Lois, Dorothy breaks off their engagement. George finally extricates a confession from
Ralph and goes in search of Lois, who has disappeared. He finds her leading a reformed life on a friend's
farm and takes her to his heart.
