Phillips is wrapped up in business and neglects his two motherless boys, except to punish them when they make the slightest slip. George, the leader, determines to run away, leaving an explanatory note for his father. This causes the father to reflect upon his own boyhood, with its many faults. When a policeman returns with his son, he forgives him instead of punishing him, and they resolve to try to understand each other better.
