Trouble fostered by Bill Leets, in the secret employ of a business rival, results in a strike which ruins Tom Plank, head of an industrial plant. Upon learning that the boy has lost his wealth, Clara, his fiancée, returns his ring. Leets loves Barbara Ragan. Before the crash, Tom had become interested in the girl.

Tom follows the murderer home. Knowledge that his crime is known fills the old man with terror. Tom then learns that Barbara is Leets' sweetheart.
