To avoid any hint of scandal after the death of her fiancé and the
birth of her baby, Dorothea ( Seena Owen ) gives her child to her
friend Martha ( Norma Talmadge ), who arranges to have the infant
raised by her old nurse. Having been able to keep her baby a secret,
Dorothea marries Deacon Hunt ( Ralph Lewis ) and Martha becomes engaged
to John ( William Hinckley ). Unfortunately, the unscrupulous Sell
Hawkins ( Tully Marshall ) remembers having seen Martha bring the baby
to the nurse, and in-front of the church congregation accuses her of
being an unwed mother. Dorothea keeps quiet, while poor Martha hoping
to protect her friend, declines telling the truth about the child.
Martha's guilt looks real, when suddenly the child is brought injured
into the church and Dorothea's maternal instinct takes over, she rushes
to the child, with her actions and expression betraying her own secret.
Sadly this Norma Talmadge drama remains a lost silent film.
