Nellie Gleason is a top private detective. She goes in pursuit of Jim Kinkaid, who has fled to Mexico after robbing George Arnold, a real estate magnate. Kinkaid falls in love with Gleason and she finally tracks him down, and he agrees to return to the United States. Gleason in turn falls in love with him and then discovers that Arnold has gotten rich by swindling immigrants and that Kinkaid stole from him in order to reimburse Arnold’s victims. Gleason helps Kinkaid escape from custody and goes to Mexico with him.
