Fred Cochran, the hero, is a down-at-heel gangster, trying to make a comeback.

Lil Smith is his loyal moll, a tart with a heart of gold, who longs for respectability and keeps a marriage licence ready for her lucky day.

Fred's shpieler (gambling den) provides a refuge for the failures of the underworld: Paddy the gambler, Tosher the ponce with his girls Betty and Rosey, and Redhot, a sad little burglar who never manages to get warm.

They all look to Fred for a living and when he wins on the horses it seems the gang may be back in business.4 women, 9 men
