Aaron Rodd is a tall, gaunt, pale young man whose legal practice is a failure. He is about to give up when he is approached by his old friend, Ned Stiles, who is now going by the name Harvey Grimm. As Ned Stiles, lawyer, he was a failure and got into legal trouble. But as Harvey Grimm, capitalist, he is a success. Grimm hires Rodd to be a part of a complicated swindling operation, but Rodd eventually separates himself from Grimm and finds love and success.
