A Chicago gangster, called Robbo, tries to hide fifty thousand ill gotten, and very hot, dollars by donating the loot to the Blessed Shelter Orphans Home. The result is a lot of good press and public adulation for Robbo, who finds he really enjoys the fringe benefits of his new public image. So much so, in fact, that he and his henchmen decide to open up a mission for the poor souls on Poverty Row -- of course they might just do a little gambling in the back room from time to time.
