Joe (George Beban) is an immigrant ice maker and his girlfriend, Trina (Mary Skurkoy), is crushed when he tells her his "sweetheart" is arriving from the old country. She's happy to discover that this sweetheart is his old mother (Marie di Benedetta). The simple, earthy old lady proceeds to inadvertently get herself in trouble with the law. She takes in laundry and when she finds a diamond bracelet in one of the baskets, she is arrested and convicted of theft. Joe is extremely upset by the situation and a gang of thugs plan to use him to get rid of the district attorney (J.W. Johnston). Joe foils their plan, saving both the D.A. and Trina from an explosives-filled golf ball and certain death. The innocence of Joe's mother is established and he takes her -- and Trina and her father -- to live out in the country.
