Holt and Moore are WW I buddies who return to the US; Moore gets work as a police sergeant, but Holt is left jobless. Holt starts running booze for a small-time bootlegger, but becomes enterprising and goes into business for himself, creating an enemy in his former employer. When Holt's
brother is killed, Holt retaliates by killing the bootlegger. He is caught, however, by Moore. The two of them, plus nurse Cummings, who served with them in the war, walk arm in arm to the electric chair. Not everyone loves a parade, especially if it's their last one.
