Storyline

Eve makes a poor living selling flowers. She pleads with her old nurse, Matilde, with whom she lives, to allow her to enter cafés saying she would have no trouble to dispose of her flowers there. Matilde realizes the time has come to tell Eve of her mother's fate. Her mother, a singer, had married the only son of a wealthy man. This son was disinherited for connecting the family with a stage performer. Time went by and the pair drifted from bad to worse; Bentley after using up all his wife's money and jewels, deserted her on the night Eve was born. Matilde was maid to the mother and when she died it fell to her lot to care for Eve. When the old nurse finishes the story she dozes off, still dreaming of the past. Eve, desperate by lack of food and her nurse's weak condition, decides to disobey. Taking her flowers, she steals out to seek the bright lights. A crowd of young revelers, among them Victor Austin, are attracted to the pretty flower girl as they enter the café. They buy all her... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
