Storyline

Forsythe, a supposed wealthy jeweler, plans the operations of a band of crooks and then recuts the stones and sells them. He does not wish his sister, Grace, to whom he is devoted, to visit the tenement districts, fearing she might learn something about him. She, however, visits the slums without his knowledge and meets Larry, a reporter; when Forsythe learns of this, he forbids her seeing Larry. Clax, the gang leader kills a banker and after a row with Forsythe, takes part of the gang and plots to "get" Forsythe. He kidnaps Grace. Slim, one of the gang who remained with Forsythe, discovers Clax. Larry and the police, and Forsythe with his gang, attempt to rescue the girl. A fight takes place in which Clax and Forsythe are wounded, but before Clax dies he discloses Forsythe's dual life. Forsythe, dying, exacts a promise from Larry that he will let this knowledge remain a secret from Grace. Although inconsolable for a time, Grace later finds happiness with Larry.
