Dorothy Belmore, a southern beauty, is loved by two men, Stephen Carter and Preston Moore. Dorothy is urged by her father, who is in financial straits, to marry Stephen, who is heir to a large estate. Moore, though practically without money, is an experienced business man of middle age. He goes to New York, promising to return for Dorothy as soon as he has made enough money to marry her. After his departure, Dorothy yields to her father's wishes. Dorothy accepts the devotion of her husband as a matter of course, but secretly idealizes the memory of Moore. Stephen's father dies and it is then discovered that he has been speculating in the Cotton Exchange and has lost nearly everything except the family homestead.

Five years elapse, and Stephen finds it a hard struggle to keep up the home. Dorothy is not particularly happy, but devotes herself like a good mother... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
