In love with a man who wants to marry her after he returns from a trip to sea, chorus girl Angela Booth tries to quit her seamy job and become a model citizen. When her employer refuses to dissolve her contract, though, they quarrel and she accidentally hits him. He presses charges, claiming she hit him deliberately, and she is convicted and sent to prison. As her fiance is at sea and out of contact, she is terrified he will think she has jilted him when she does not keep a New Year's date. A kindly old convict, Gran', notorious as a prison-breaker, who agrees to engineer an escape for Angela... Never shown per se in the USA, principal footage from the film was reworked there and supplemented with new footage to transform the plot and characters from a story of prison hardship, to a tale of an international hunt for a gangster, with Angela becoming his moll and Gran' becoming an agent of the police.
