Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Irishman Felix O'Day (H.B. Warner) sees his life crumble when his so-called friend Austin Bennett (Ray Ripley) convinces his father to stake his estate for a money scheme. The scheme fails, and the old man dies of a broken heart. On top of that, Bennett runs off with Felix's faithless wife, Barbara (Marguerite Snow). Felix pursues the couple from Ireland to New York City, where he loses track of them. Both Felix and Bennett gradually spend what little money they have and when they finally do meet up, it's in a tenement apartment. Felix threatens to kill Bennett with his bare hands, but when Bennett tries to use a clothes line to escape through a window and it snaps, the job is done for him. This picture was based on the novel by Edgar Franklin.
