The good girl is this flick is Marjorie, who is poor but works hard in a laundry to support her no-good parents and older brothers. Being poor, she is unkempt, and shunned by her co-workers. However, when her co-worker Florence invites her on a double date, Marjorie is able to borrow clothes and have her hair done. The girls are taken to one of those notorious cafes where booze and drugs flow and anything goes. Marjorie gets drunk and tries a marihuana cigarette --- it's all downhill from there.
