Ted Ewing, a young New Yorker, is the guardian of Nora Hildreth, with whom he is in love.

In the year when Charles Chaplin signed up with Essanay Films to write, direct and act in his own two reelers, Cecil B. DeMille adapted his own stage play, 'After Five', into a feature film at the age of 35. It is akin to translating the experiences of being in church into a feature film.
