Through her ill temper the mother makes home life very unpleasant. She is always contrary and stubborn when her husband suggests anything that doesn't exactly coincide with her views. As you may imagine, these little tiffs are not very healthful for their children, a girl and a boy, the little girl especially being influenced by the condition. During a little outing with other children, the girl shows her ill temper and a quarrel ensues between her and another little girl, which results in the ostracism of the ill-tempered child from the festivities. A leaky motor boat has been drawn up to the dock by a couple of vacationists, and, in the course of their play, a party of the children go out in it. The quarrelsome child knows of the danger, but in spite won't warn them. Far out to sea the children go, and would have perished had not the girl's conscience awakened, causing her to spread the news of their danger. The children are rescued after a terrifying experience.
