Roberta Lee, played by Mary Miles Minter, is a good natured young woman who convinces her father to hire an ex-convict, 'Slippery' Bill, with the idea of reforming him. Despite his best efforts, working at their home as a gardner, Bill yields to temptation and steals some of Roberta's expensive jewels. Disappointed with the turn of events, Roberta attempts to find solace with a trip to the country where she meets the handsome Richard Van Stone.

Naturally, a love interest is in the works between Van Stone and Roberta. The smitten young man winds up purchasing one of Roberta's stolen jewels to present to her as a gift. He is immediately arrested which forces Roberta into doing some detective work. Disquised as a boy (Mary played a dual role in this film), she manages to crack the case and clear Richard Van Stone of any wrongdoing. The film concludes with her accepting his proposal of marriage.
