The young fiancèe of a rich but elderly lawyer is robbed of a precious jewel given to her as a present by the man. Afraid of being caught, the pick-pocket leaves the jewel on the table of a cafè where a chorus girl happens to be seated. When the chorus girl sets eyes on it, she interpretes the find as "an act of god" to whom she has been praying faithfully for a stroke of luck to help her out of a particularly difficult position she finds herself in. This event gives rise to a series of changes in the lives of the leading characters, such as the breaking of the engagement and the birth of a new romance.
