Storyline

Colonel Daw, a hero of the Boer war, regrets his uselessness in his country's present need. Crippled and living a lonely life in the country, while his young wife seeks the pleasures of the city, he becomes cynical. Through the request of one Red Cross service, he turns his home into a hospital for the wounded soldiers. Among them are two Frenchmen, Francas and a boy, who appear to be great friends. Francas tells Colonel Daw how his wife died when their babe was tiny and how the aged grandmother had since cared for the child. Then he recited the story told by the boy, who had tried to escape with the baby when the grandmother was killed, but while going in search of food, had lost the little one. Breaking down, Francas begs Colonel Daw to find his child and protect her. As he sits by the fire, gazing at the baby face of the picture given him, Colonel Daw falls asleep and dreams of the coming of Zoe, the lost infant. Suddenly awaking, he sees his wife leading a small girl by the hand. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
