Storyline

Because of his wife's illness, David Mills, a young clerk, is forced to solicit a loan from Grydes. The latter is a soulless man with an overshadowing passion for money, unprincipled and devoid of sentiment. Unable to repay the exorbitant interest, David is mercilessly bled into bankruptcy by the human vampire. Ernest Renard and his sister, Beatrice, rich philanthropists, seek a suitable person to fill the position of superintendent for a large institution, a home for crippled children, which they have founded. The scheming Grydes sees the advertisement and makes written application, representing himself to be well qualified for the position. Renard determines to personally investigate the applicant and visits the town where the loan shark lives. On his way to Grydes' home, Renard is attacked by a thug and left in a desperate condition. He manages to reach Grydes' house, where the unscrupulous agent, failing to recognize the stranger, shows his true colors by refusing him assistance. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
