The ability of Ruth Tilden, attorney-at-law, impresses district attorney John Harding, who eventually asks Ruth to marry him. After the wedding, however, John prefers that Ruth cease practicing the law. John's son Jack, who is in love with dancer Annette Loti, is arrested for Annette's murder after her jealous lover, Raoul Bozen, frames him for the crime. John is forced to prosecute his own son but is delighted when Ruth takes Jack's case and forces a confession from Bozen in court."
