Summary
After receiving a modest inheritance, Bud Reeves leaves his small Indiana town for New York City, where he joins his cousin Gibby. Gibby throws a party, delighted to spend Bud's money, then introduces him to attractive Vida Fleet. As bootleg whiskey flows, several revelers become drunk, a fight breaks out and a young woman is killed. Bud and Vida flee to a gambling club, where Bud loses his money and is then picked up by police for the murder
