This picture is one of Norma Shearer's early starring efforts, and she's not nearly as good here as she was in other pictures she made around the same time such as Channing of the Northwest or Man and Wife. When Jim Allen (Gladden James believes Dare to be responsible for his father's ruin, he avoids the man's daughter, Marjorie (Shearer). But Marjorie is in love with Jim and she tracks him down to a cabin in the mountains. Stewart Leighton (Richard Neill) is also there. Leighton takes her in, but his polite demeanor is a ruse and he tries to attack her. She's saved only by the intervention of a bearded stranger -- who turns out to be Jim's father. The truth finally comes out and the young couple are united. The star's mother, Edith Shearer, has a small part as a secretary, which she performs with a flair that Norma lacked.
