After the mill girl Julie Jordan marries that handsome carousel barker Billy Bigelow things turn sour for the couple. Billy cannot find a job and he and Julie are forced to live with their cousin Nettie. Billy has taken to using violence against her but Julie continues to love her husband.
In a desperate ploy for money Billy's friend Jigger Craigin convinces Billy to help him assault and rob David Bascombe, the mill owner.
