Young Winston Miller stars in this strange silent melodrama about a young boy who becomes the sole beneficiary of his grandfather's will because the old man cannot trust any other family member. Winston goes to live with Grandpa (Emmett King), who in a fit of pique kills his own son (Ralph Faulkner). The shock causes the old man to suffer a fatal heart attack and Jimmy inherits his wealth. If that wasn't enough, Jimmy is forced to fend off a homicidal aunt (Eulalie Jensen), but is saved in the nick of time by a faithful retainer. Child actor Winston Miller was the brother of silent screen ingenue Patsy Ruth Miller.
