Plot Summary
American crook Laura (Karen Morley) is released from jail in Germany and taken in by Polakai (Wallace Beery), a brutish but kind wrestler. Laura is grateful for Polakai's help -- and strapped for cash -- so she marries him. However, she really loves her former partner and boyfriend, Nicky (Ricardo Cortez), who is back in America. Laura talks her husband into moving there, where she reignites her romance with Nicky. But when Polakai finds out, he puts his strength to use -- violently.
