Gun moll Nan Taylor, caught after an otherwise successful bank robbery, falls for radio crusader David Slade and confides her guilt to him. Much to her surprise, he turns her in. As a "new fish" at San Quentin, Nan fits right in, but won't see Slade, who still loves her. Then she learns that her former partners in crime, Don and Dutch, are on the other side of the wall in the men's section...and have an escape plan. Written by

I may be outta here myself, before long.
What do you mean out? Your parole ain't due for eight or nine months yet.
Yeah, but I might be able to use that Slade sap in some way?
You didn't have much luck with him last time.
I'll handle him different next time.
