Cast & Crew
While eloping, Helen Moore and Raoul Kent, the nephew of Senator Foote, experience car trouble and go to a hotel where Kent makes unwanted advances toward his fiancée. Hearing Helen's screams, Hugh Graham, a candidate for district attorney, breaks into the room to save her but is seen exiting by Gregory, a political rival who threatens to destroy him with this seemingly compromising situation. Hugh agrees to withdraw from the race, and Helen moves to Washington, D.C. to work for Senator Foote's wife. While on business in the city, Hugh spies Helen at the theater with the senator and assumes a romance. Following her back to the senator's home, Hugh catches Kent stealing confidential papers from his uncle's safe and in the ensuing struggle, kills the nephew. Hugh resolves to run for Congress, but once again Gregory threatens to ruin him with the hotel incident. His chances for success with Helen and politics dim, Hugh is vindicated by a conscientious newspaper editor, who reveals the entire truth about Helen's innocence and reunites the couple.
