Mary Pickford's most well-known clone, Mary Miles Minter, plays in orphan named Faith in this drama. She befriends Mark Strong Perry Banks, a lawyer who has a problem with the bottle. While Strong is pulling himself out of his alcoholic stupor, Faith is arrested and falsely charged with theft. Naturally, the lawyer comes to her aid in the courtroom. He puts forth an impressive argument during her trial and saves the aptly-named Faith. While it is clear that the studio was doing all it could to push the waiflike Minter's career, it is Banks who walks away with this film.
