Margaret MacLean ( Mae Murray ), who has been saved from life in a wheelchair by the miracle of medicine, vows to devote her life to caring for crippled children. She becomes a nurse in the children's ward of Dr. MacLean's ( Winter Hall ) hospital, but after the beloved doctor's death, his son Bob ( Tom Moore ) returns home from abroad and decrees that he is closing the ward and that Margaret's little charges must leave the hospital. Furious, Margaret quits her job and storms out, with Bob in pursuit. As he rushes across the street, Bob is struck by a car and must be hospitalized. During his convalescence, he realizes that he is in love with Margaret and decides to have a home built for her and her patients. Unable to locate Margaret, Bob hires detectives, who find her and bring her to the home. There Margaret finds that all her dreams have come true as she sees her little charges happily living in their new home and gladly accepts Bob's proposal of marriage.
This 1917 silent drama was based on the novel The Primrose Ring by Ruth Sawyer, produced by Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company, starring Mae Murray, Tom Moore and was Loretta Young's film debut at the age of four. Sadly this silent film now remains lost.
