FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

Jimmy Wells, the apple of his mother's eye, joins a criminal gang in order to provide his mother with gifts and a better life. He falls in love with Goldie, the gun moll of Butch, the gang leader, and arouses Butch's enmity. The police are tipped off about a factory robbery, and Butch believes that Jimmy squealed on the gang; Butch orders Jimmy shot, but a cigarette case stops the bullet, saving his life. Goldie then turns stool pigeon in revenge, and Detective Shields sets a trap for the gang. Butch is killed, and Shields allows Jimmy to go west with his mother for a fresh start.
