When a taxi carrying socialite Ruth Darrow drives into the middle of a gun battle between hijacker Kid Gloves and a trio of bootleggers, Ruth is injured. She is taken to a nearby apartment, and The Kid helps to care for her. John Stone, Ruth's fiance and a bootlegger with a respectable front, finds them together and blackmails The Kid into marrying the girl. The Kid and Ruth live together like brother and sister, and Stone, realizing that Ruth was not two-timing him, decides to bump off The Kid. To save her husband's life, Ruth agrees to leave The Kid and marry Stone. Stone is implicated in a killing, however, and forced to leave town. Ruth and The Kid decide to stay married, and The Kid determines to reform.
