Storyline

Mona and Mary, on a slumming trip with Carson, the millionaire social worker who has aided them in the past, learn the story of Winnie, who has been brought to starvation through being duped by Prof. Herman. The latter is an unscrupulous sharp who defrauds girls and their doting parents through promises of a brilliant future on the concert stage after he has cultivated their voices. The girls plan to recover Winnie's money and drive Herman from business. Mary becomes one of his pupils, and after winning his confidence secures his aid in a plan to mulct Mona and her supposed wealthy backers, Carson and Grant. The plan works along smoothly until the suspicions of Herman's aide are aroused and from then on the struggle is bitter until the final scene finds the girls successful.
