Storyline

The scene of the story is laid at San Diego in the grounds of the Panama Exposition, and centers about a young girl whose mother, near death, has sent her with her little sister to look up her aunt. The aunt, who, with her unscrupulous husband, runs a show at the exposition, figures as the human butterfly. The girl is persecuted for her beauty by her uncle, takes refuge with the Hawaiian players, and finally is taken to a good home by a rich family from Honolulu. The production has not much merit as a drama, but is interesting partly because of the exposition scenes which it presents. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
