This drama chronicles the life and times of a notorious gangster. The story begins at his funeral. There a reporter, assigned to do a brief biography, interviews a doctor who tells the gangster's sad tale. In flashback, the crook is first seen getting released from prison. His father pleads with him to go straight, but the son doesn't listen. He immediately robs a warehouse. His father rats upon him and the crook's gang abducts the district attorney's daughter to bargain for his release. Later it is discovered that the girl is really his daughter whom he and his lover put up for adoption. A policeman, a good friend of the gangster, helps the criminal escape and save his daughter from the gang. He is killed during the rescue.
