Storyline

Nonie Kayliss is a spoiled child. When her father scolds her, her mother takes her part, and vice versa. This treatment teaches Nonie to disregard the orders of both parents. And it brings about a violent scene between Jack and his wife, which results in the former leaving his home. Nonie's grandparents, who are practical old folk, take a hand, and in punishment of the child tie her to a chair. Nonie has a dream of going up a long flight of steps and coming to a room filled with toys and friendly children. They tell her she cannot enter because she is a bad girl. Nonie awakes, and is so much impressed by her dream that she resolves to become a good girl. Her first move is to get her father and effect a reconciliation between him and her mother.
