Joseph Graybill, learning that his friends have been making a lot of money in the stock market, takes a flyer himself. However, when a drop in the shares he has bought wipes him out, he breaks into his employer's safe for money to pay for a margin call. Will the thought of his grey-haired mother and the importunities of his co-worker Mabel Normand stop him or will he descend to a life of crime?

Graybill was a minor player for Griffith from 1909 through 1913, one who spent most of the time as a supporting player, and while he is competent here, this is a role that demands a lot of acting without much motion, and he isn't up to it. Likewise, Miss Normand, while vivacious, is a little too broad -- her métier was in comedy. This relatively minor Griffith picture is competent, as almost all his pictures were, but offers little beyond that.
