Auld Lang Syne is a silent British meller that asks the audience: "Does lower class mean lower values?" Commoner Violet Graham marries English noble Henry Baynton. No one gives the marriage much of a chance, but Baynton loves his wife and cares not about her humble origins. Enter George Bellamy, Graham's petty-thief brother, who takes advantage of his sister's society connections to stage a jewel theft. Graham nobly takes the blame for the robbery, which utterly ruins any chance for her future happiness.
