Evil Mr.Grimes retains a rag-tag bunch orphans on his farm deep in a swamp within the US South. He forces them to work in his backyard and treats them like slaves. They’re watched over by the eldest, Molly. A gang in league with Mr. Grimes kidnaps Doris, the gorgeous little daughter of a wealthy man, and hides her out on Grimes’ farm, awaiting ransom. When the police shut in, and Mr. Grimes threatens to throw Doris into the bottomless mire, Molly should lead her little flock out via the alligator-infested swamp.
