Jobless Betty Andrews, although innocent, is convicted of a department
store theft and, despite the best efforts of her lawyer and noted social
worker Mary Ellis and a reporter, Jim Brent on her behalf, is sentenced to
a year in the Curtiss House of Correction. Chief Matron Brackett rules
with an iron hand with the aid of inmates Frankie Mason, "The Duchess"
and Nita Lavore. One of the inmates commits suicide and a subsequent
story by Jim on the prison conditions leads to Mary Ellis being made the
supervisor of the prison. When ten girls are allowed to go home for
Thanksgiving under the promise of returning by eleven p.m., Frankie and
"The Duchess", angry over losing the privileges given them by the
departed Matron Brackett, arrange to have Betty kidnapped so she can
not return at the appointed time. Another of the girls telephones Jim and
he finds Betty a prisoner at a deserted roadhouse.
