Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Lambert (William Stowell), a doctor and a minister, comes to live in a Western town with his wife (Helen Gibson). But she is enticed away by a gambler named West (Hector Dion). She returns, but dies in childbirth and Lambert loses his faith and any desire to help anyone. He places the baby on a doorstep and leaves town to wander aimlessly. Many years pass and he returns to the town and meets Lily Sawyer (Mildred Davis), who works at a hotel belonging to Smith (Alfred Allen). Because of the young girl's sweet personality, Lambert starts thinking about becoming a member of the human race again. Then West comes to town and lusts after Lily. West's partner, Fanny (Betty Schade), tells Lambert that Lily is his daughter. Lambert kills West before he can lay a hand on Lily, and soon after, his faith in God is restored.
