To relieve the monotony of home life, Leon Kent ( Walter McGrail )throws a wild party. Distracted by the noise and drunken revelry, Kent's wife ( Ruth Clifford ) leaves the house with her small son and goes to the house of a sympathetic neighbor, Ross Brewster ( David Torrence ), a wealthy banker. The following morning, Kent becomes enraged to discover that his wife has spent the night with Brewster, and he divorces her, taking their young son with him. For twenty-five years, Mrs. Kent, known now by her maiden name, Pearce, and Ross Brewster maintain a beautiful relationship, although they never marry. Brewster's daughter, Judy ( Patsy Ruth Miller ), returns home with Elliot Owen ( Frankie Darro ), a young man whom she introduces as her fiancé. Brewster soon discovers that Owen is guilty of fraudulent investment-promotion, and Owen discloses that he has been married to Judy for three months. Brewster refuses to help Owen and hints that the best and most honorable thing for Owen to do would be to kill himself. Owen then reveals that he is the son of Mrs. Pearce. When Brewster still refuses to help Owen, Owen overcome with remorse and jumps over a cliff. He is not killed, however, and Brewster helps him regain spiritual and physical health. Judy gives birth to a child, and Brewster takes Owen into the banking business with him.
This 1925 silent melodrama starring Patsy Ruth Miller and Ruth Clifford, sadly may now be a lost silent film.
