Storyline

Sylvia is the niece of a man who leaves a fortune for her. He leaves it in the hands of his attorney, who is supporting an aspiring wife and daughter. Sylvia goes to the lawyer's home and is looked upon as an intruder. The lawyer's son sets out on a road of dissipation and soon becomes a devotee of gay life. He is saved just in time by the gentle influence of Sylvia and, upon discovering that his father is using all of the girl's fortune, he makes him give her the money. The family is horror-stricken at the thought of losing their fortune. They ask Sylvia's forgiveness for their treatment of her and she insists upon sharing her fortune with them. She also tells Arnold, the son, that his love is reciprocated. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
