After he is injured in an explosion, Grant is taken to the Nesbit home and under Laura's care, his health is restored. When, during a strike at the mines, Grant's little son is shot and killed, he becomes so overwrought with grief that he confesses the child's parentage to Laura, who forgives his past and they begin a new life ...
