~Plot Synopsis~
Young Bob Mannering (John Harron) is out for a ride with his fast-living pals when they're involved
in a car accident which kills a woman. Even though Diane Graham (Elinor Faire) was driving the car,
she accuses Bob of being behind the wheel. Bob's father, John (Huntley Gordon), is the district
attorney and he feels he is duty-bound to prosecute his son. His wife, Eileen (Irene Rich), vehemently
disagrees and goes to his rival, Jerry Wallace (Gayne Whitman), to plan a scandal which will force her
husband out of office. The plan backfires when Mannering finds Eileen in Wallace's apartment. He
denounces her and the couple separate. Eileen stays at a hotel where she finds Diane, who confesses
that she was driving the car when the woman was killed. The two women escape a forest fire and they
get Bob released. Eileen and her husband reconcile.
