*

With a title that appears to have no relation to the actual story, the plot has secret agent, Mary Smith (De La Motte) living a double life as the respectable Miss Smith on Sundays, and Sonia, a Russian cafe dancer, during the week. Smith must use both of her personalities to help her  bother when he is caught embezzling $10,000 from the millionaire father of Dick Foster (Bowers), one of Sonia’s admirers. After the successful capture of a gang of Russian spies, she is free to reveal her true identity and marry Foster.
