Treated unkindly by her aunt ( Julia Swayne Gordon ), orphan Lois Walton ( Elaine Hammerstein ) is placed in a reformatory. She and the other inmates are badly abused but are too frightened to complain, and she remains silent after a riot is subdued. Lois evokes the kindness of Peter Madison ( Robert Ellis ), a lawyer who conducts an investigation, she is paroled. Placed in a doctor's home, she becomes afraid by his advances and runs away. Refusing Madison's offer of refuge in his apartment, she becomes social secretary to Miss Dell ( Florence Billings ), who operates a gambling house, and tries to force her into a marriage with wealthy young Leo Carstairs ( Ronald Schabel ); but she is saved by Madison, who claims her as his own wife.
This 1921 melodrama was produced by Selznick Pictures Corporation and filmed on locations in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Ronald Colman is listed among the cast , but sadly this silent film remains lost.
