Struggling American painter William Peyton ( Marshall Neilan ) promises to return to his fiancée, Alice Travers ( Bessie Eyton ), and then goes to London to perfect his art. Arline Arrington ( Mary Charleson ), William's first English model, falls seriously ill, and before she dies she makes William vow to take care of Claudia ( Mary Charleson ), her young daughter. Meanwhile, Alice grows more and more impatient, and then, when she hears about Claudia, she goes to London to insist that William give up his ward and come back to the United States to get married. William refuses, so Alice marries Paul Helmer ( Mary Charleson ) instead. Many years later, after Paul has died, Alice goes to London once again to give William another chance to marry her. As soon as he sees her, William realizes that he stopped loving her years before, and discovers that he really loves Claudia. As a result, William marries the woman whom he always regarded as his daughter.
This 1916 silent drama was based on play The Prince Chap by Edward Peple, produced by The Selig Polyscope Company, directed by and starring Marshall Neilan. The survival status of this film is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
