Wally Kelly is the son of a multi-billionaire, who is at a philosophic convention to deliver a long lecture on human rights. He orders Wally to go "slummy hunting" as a part of his "maturation rites".

Wally bribes the guard at the checkpoint to gain entrance to the warren, and once inside, mounts his machine gun inside his armored caddie so that the barrel sticks out about an inch.

He sees a young miss coming toward him, but she ducks into a doorway, and his car stalls and dies right in front of her.

Inside an apartment where he took her to wait to be rescued, he discovers that she just turned fourteen, and that her parents and younger brother have already been gunned down by slummy hunters.

He discovers that her name is Betty Kelly, and that their great-great grandfather escaped from the slums and earned the original Kelley fortune. He tries to get her to go back to the healthy part of the city with him, but, at first, she refuses.

She agrees to go with him, however, when he offers to devote the rest of his life to helping the poverty-stricken people in the slums.

"Can we forget the past and become family members who love each other, oh, so much?" He asks her as they're riding with their rescuers back to Dewey Circle. .
