Miss Lowen receives a visit from the police to warn her that her niece, who is an orphan and has lived with her for nine years, has been corresponding with Rod Collins, a lifer at the State Penitentiary. It would appear that her niece got in touch with him through a pen pal club. The officer warns her that Collins has broken out of jail and may be coming her way. Fortunately, her niece is out of town visiting friends, and when Collins shows up, she is left with no choice but to call the police. Collins is recaptured, but what does she tell her niece?
