Lord Percy ( Charles Gerard ),is a fortune hunter, eager to marry into the Brentwood family, hires struggling attorney John Stoddard ( Elliott Dexter ) and sends him to South Africa to find Lady Brentwood's ( Edythe Chapman )long-lost granddaughter. While there, John rescues Margot ( Mae Murray ) from her ruthless guardian, James Varley ( Theodore Roberts ), and then, unable to locate the missing woman, decides to bring Margot back to London to pose as the granddaughter and marry Percy. Lady Brentwood, whose daughter was killed in South Africa, is delighted at finally having an heir, but then, conscience-stricken, John and Margot decide to confess. While they do so, however, Varley arrives, determined to gain revenge on John. Suddenly, though, he softens, and explains that he killed Margot's parents, who were Lady Brentwood's daughter and son-in-law, and raised their child. Then, after the discovery that she really is Lady Brentwood's heir, Margot decides to ignore Percy and marry John instead.
This 1916 romance/drama was produced by the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company and starred the popular and beautiful actress, Mae Murray. Sadly it remains a missing silent film.
