When his sweetheart jilts him, wealthy James Armitage (Earle Williams) leaves his family estate in the hands of attorney Samuel Bordman (James Abrahams) and heads for Burma. Six years later, Armitage discovers that his former girlfriend has just become a widow, thus he sails back to America in hopes of rekindling the romance. Upon returning, he discovers that the duplicitous Bordman has stripped his estate of its wealth, and that a woebegone young woman named Doris Athelstone (Grace Darmond) is living alone in Armitage's crumbling mansion. It seems that the crooked attorney has convinced Doris that Armitage is her long-lost father, the better to plunder the estate of the girl's real father. Careful not to reveal his true identity, Armitage sets things right for Doris and in the process falls in love with her.
