The Dude from Duluth (Raymond Griffith) enters a seedy bar in San Francisco’s Chinatown, where saucy confidence trickster Molly (Betty Compson) quickly swindles him out of every dime he has. But when he flashes a detective badge, Molly gives up her entire haul as a bribe, not realizing he’s a fellow con man. Later, the pair team up to steal a priceless piece of jewelry, but, as they’re being chased to the Mexican border, Molly regrets her life of crime and endeavors to go straight.
