Danny (Pomeroy Cannon) and Mamie (Elsie Jane Wilson) have an adorable little girl, Daisy May (Zoe Rae). But Danny is addicted to drink and neglects Mamie, who soothes her wounded ego with the attentions of artist Gaston Bouvais (Harry Carter). Little Daisy, however, is the gem of the neighborhood and helps put gambler Tommie (Emory Johnson) on the straight and narrow, which saves his relationship with Kate (Mignon Anderson). When Daisy is seriously injured while riding on her father's brewery truck, it helps bring both her parents to their senses. Rupert Julian managed to direct this picture without making it too sickeningly saccharine.
