Janet Loring (Myrtle Steadman) marries millionaire Malcolm Trask (Frank Truesdell). The only catch is that she has to desert her son, Ranny. Ranny becomes a crook's helper who grows up (to be played by William Collier Jr.) to become a thief himself. The years pass and Janet wants to see her boy again, so she puts an advertisement in the newspaper. Ranny's associate -- who doesn't realize he's really Janet's son -- sends him to her, thinking he is pulling off a swindle. Ranny takes Janet's money, but then she convinces him that he really is her son. The repentant young man confesses everything. Eventually he wins a sweetheart, Margy (Mary Philbin), and is welcomed into the Trask home.
