Plot

As described in a film magazine review,[3] Janet Graham is cajoled into marrying Delano, who is a crook. During the War she obtains a position as a Secret Service agent under Bruce Corbin, in charge of scheduling transports. They fall in love. Delano is hired by the Germans and directed to obtain a list of transports sailing to Europe from Corbin's safe. He breaks in and forces Janet to accompany him. She warns a transport by radio to beware of a Hun submarine, which is then discovered and sunk. Corbin and guards rescue her and Delano is killed. Corbin and Janet wed.
