'Bob, a young country bumpkin with a heart of gold, is always helping people in distress.

'He is attracted to Hannah, a pretty, young Salvation Army girl, but she is clearly disapproving of his friendship with three prostitutes who pay a visit to the town.

'Hannah, however, is not all she seems to be, but Bob is not one to censure, nor abandon his generous ways.'
