This melodrama boasts a solid cast, including Tully Marshall and Lon Chaney in supporting roles. After her father's death, Sylvia Alden (Seena Owen) goes to the slums to do mission work. There she encounters Bradford Vinton (Bernard J. Durning), and a romance blossoms. Neither of them realize that his father, Eliot (Melbourne McDowell), had swindled her father. When Sylvia and Bradford become engaged, his parents are upset that he is marrying a mission singer, and Eliot bribes a couple of sleazy women to make negative reports about Sylvia's background and character. Bradford is angry at his father's deeds, and opens up a restaurant in the slums. He gets in a fight with some of Eliot's evil associates and is badly wounded. His parents rush to the hospital, only to discover that Bradford's life has been saved because Sylvia was willing to submit to a blood transfusion.
