Joe Fallon (Alan Baxter) rescues his teenage brother, Mickey (Bobby Jordan), from an orphanage -- hiding the fact that he's a bookmaker for gambler Lou Baronette (Morgan Conway) -- and puts him to work in a gambling den. When reporter Jane Morgan (Joan Blondell) breaks a story on the racket, Joe takes the rap for Lou and is sentenced to jail, while Mickey ends up in a reformatory. Angered, Jane and her husband, fellow journalist Breezy Elliot (Pat O'Brien), spring Mickey to help nab Lou.
