~Plot Synopsis~
In planning to break into the house of the wealthy Bob Van Dyke, Jenny's stepfather decides that his
stepdaughter should do most of the dirty work, and Jenny, not wanting to disappoint him,
grudgingly agrees. As soon as she enters the house, Bob catches her, but then goes back to his
bedroom after making her give her word not to take anything. Jenny breaks her promise, however,
and steals a photograph of Bob, in order to remember the man who has been so kind to her. Jenny
then leaves her stepfather's gang and decides to go straight, but Bob, who has fallen on hard times,
makes plans to commit a robbery. Jenny finds out and pulls the heist herself in order to protect Bob,
after which she convinces him to get a job. Then, Bob and Jenny, having sworn off crime forever,
make plans for their marriage.
