Storyline

Alcoholic former artist David Stanley and impoverished violinist Judith Deering appear before Judge Henning. After the kindly judge dismisses the petty charges against the pair, Judith finds a job, after which she secretly sends money to David, using the judge as an intermediary. David soon stops drinking and successfully resumes his career. Meanwhile, Judith discovers that her new employer, Thomas Carter, has designs on her. She tries to leave him, but cannot, because her leaving would harm a friend who is a cabaret dancer. When David learns that Judith is his benefactor, and is in danger, he goes to her rescue.
