The death of his father leaves young Payne Forsythe entirely alone in the world. The Forsythe money has gone; the Forsythe family had died. One desperate situation tumbles after the other. Tossing the last of his fortune into the "street," Payne leaves town for a year. He returns penniless, with nothing in sight. A newspaper ad attracts his attention, and he is selected, from among a dozen applicants, to give up some healthy blood to save a young woman's life at a nearby hospital. The operation is successfully performed, but Payne is not allowed to see the girl's face or know her identity. A week later he leaves the hospital, but with a gnawing desire to know who the girl was. The incident acts as a turning point. Payne meets an old friend and goes to work on the stock exchange. Two years later he is a partner in the business, with a tidy personal fortune. He meets J. Dukes Cortwright, a young millionaire, and falls in love with his charming sister, Louise, at a bridge party. Time ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
