Former army officer Stephen Jameson (O'Brien) heads to San Q to try some reform work on the rowdy cons, including Red Kennedy (Bogart), who isn't buying his routine. Jameson has it bad for Red's singing sister May (Sheridan), who thinks he's okay for trying to help Red. Only Red, egged on by con Hanson (Sawyer), escapes the road gang to have it out with May. Convinced it's real love, Red surrenders and makes a plea to give Jameson's methods a chance--which Red doesn't get. Much of the melodrama was shot in and around the prison itself.
