In this convoluted drama a chauffeur falls in love with his boss's daughter and marries her, causing his aged father to suffer a fatal coronary. She quickly becomes pregnant and after the child's birth finds out that her husband is an abusive drunk. She tries to force him to stop drinking, but this only causes him to take all their money, and the baby. He heads back for his native New England, leaves the baby with his mother, and then becomes a merchant seaman. The abandoned wife ends up coming to the Cape Cod village where he left the baby and staying in his mother's boarding house without realizing her identity. Things really get tangled up when she falls in love with her husband's brother, an upstanding minister. Unfortunately, the day she is to marry the minister, a terrible shipwreck nearby brings a most unwelcome visitor.
