~Plot Synopsis~
Alcoholic former artist David Stanley and impoverished violinist Judith Deering appear before Judge
Henning. After the kindly judge dismisses the petty charges against the pair, Judith finds a job, after
which she secretly sends money to David, using the judge as an intermediary. David soon stops
drinking and successfully resumes his career. Meanwhile, Judith discovers that her new employer,
Thomas Carter, has designs on her. She tries to leave him, but cannot, because her leaving would
harm a friend who is a cabaret dancer. When David learns that Judith is his benefactor, and is in
danger, he goes to her rescue. In a struggle with Carter, David accidentally shoots Judith. David later
visits Judith in the hospital, where they look forward to a happy life together.
