An escaped convict leaves a daydreaming Stan Laurel wearing prison stripes. Once arrested, the silent comedian's character is the unwitting agent of a series of penitentiary pratfalls. Some of the gags are familiar (shaving cream in the kisser), others less so (an electric chair mishap). An extra spry Laurel hams it up for the camera; a few years later he would find a more satisfying foil in Oliver Hardy.
