A woman attempts to immigrate from Poland but her American dream turns into a nightmare when while sailing to Ellis Island her sister grows deathly ill and she is forced to trade sexual favors for medicine and food to keep her sister alive. Once they land, she is warned to keep quiet about what happened. Though she does, she walks away with immigration papers that deem her a woman with bad morals. With no place to go, she falls prey to a man who persuades her to turn tricks in New York. Then she meets his cousin, a magician who sweeps her off her feet and is her best chance to escape the nightmarish life she has fallen into.
