Wealthy widow, Mrs. Esther Meyers ( Vera Gordon ) who bestows every good care on her two sons, Robert ( Harry Benham ) and Harry ( Stanley Price ), is disappointed when Robert elopes with Aida ( Belle Bennett ) , a society girl who has a frivolous and socially ambitious mother ( Beth Mason ). To satisfy her son and his mother-in-law, Mrs. Meyers moves from her modest home to a fashionable residence in New York's West Side. Harry, to meet debts, misappropriates funds from the bank where he is employed; Mrs. Meyers persuades him to confess and then appeals to Robert, destined for district attorney-ship, who in turn accuses Harry of jeopardizing his (Robert's) future. After selling her jewels to make good the loss, Mrs. Meyers castigates Robert, Aida, and her mother and returns with Harry to her old home. Later, she is visited by the repentant wife and her mother, who are forced to remain through a quarantine imposed because of a smallpox epidemic; Aida becomes gradually domesticated and an inseparable friend of her mother-in-law.
This 1922 drama was filmed by Harry Rapf Productions , starring actress Vera Gordon, now sadly remains a lost silent film.
