Giacinta is sickly and unable to withstand the northern climate. On the advice of a physician he sells his fruit stand and goes south with his daughter, Bettina. There she wins the attention of Bradley, a small town usurer. When Giacinta needs money for land, he has to go to Bradley. Vincente, a young Italian, helps them work their farm. Bradley, fearing Vincente's influence over Bettina, endeavors to have Giacinta discharge him, but is unsuccessful.

Pepo does so, hides most of the money behind an old stump on an uncleared land. He gambles with the rest of the money and is killed, but does not die until he has accused Bradley and betrayed the hiding place of the money to Vincente.

Obeying all the melodramatic laws
13 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

A melodrama in which the heroine's weak point, the point through which the villain can attack her, is her sick brother, this added to the fact that she is poor. She and her brother have come to Florida for her brother's health and the villain lends them money to buy a farm and the hero gets a job with them as a hand. Another character is introduced, also a hand, and this man is to help the villain and, later, make a dying confession that will frustrate him. The story progresses smoothly, obeying all the melodramatic laws in order to excite our sympathy for the heroine, and taking all the melodramatic privilege it wants. It is only fairly acted. We believe that many people like such pictures and that there is a demand for them. Some, of course, have seen too many to be longer interested. George Nicholls produced this from the script of Epes Winthrop Sargent. Edwin Carewe and Ernestine Morley play the leading romantic roles, George Nicholls plays the villain's role, - The Moving Picture World, September 20, 1913
