Robert Wagner, a distinguished artist, is commissioned to paint a large vase, but he lacks inspiration in the model he has chosen. Red and Mack Clarke are two crooks, whom the police are watching. They read in the newspapers of this exceedingly valuable vase, and force their sister to attempt to steal it. That night the artist remains seated in his studio after the butler has closed the house, planning a design for the vase. Mag enters the room with a burglar's spotlight, clad in boy's attire, while the brother keeps watch outside. Wagner turns on the lights and the girl is his prisoner. The brothers are captured by the police. On the entrance of the police with the two crooks they discover the girl posing for the famous artist, who tells them that she is his model. Mag thanks the artist for having saved her from the police, and gives up her life of crime.
