Synopsis by Janiss Garza
A lonely wife runs off with a traveling actor, taking her boy with her but leaving her daughter behind. The boy, Byron Bennett (Lionel Barrymore), grows up, and is stranded back in Mayville with a theater troupe. To make enough money to get out of town, they teach the local fire department how to put on a play. While the village cutie Grace Jessup (Ethel Dayton) is being shown how to act, one of the troupe tries to seduce her. Byron, knowing what the lecher is up to, even if Grace doesn't, follows the pair and chokes the man senseless. Just then, Grace's proud Southern colonel father (Frank Currier) comes along and takes a potshot at Byron, thinking he's the cad. But the bullet hits a small metal case, which contains a picture of his mother -- the colonel's wife. So brother, sister and father are reunited.
