Leon Kent (Walter McGrail) is a ne'er-do-well who throws wild parties. His wife eventually tires of him. She finds sympathy with Ross Brewster, a banker (David Torrence), which angers Kent. After an argument, Kent walks out with the couple's little boy. A couple of decades later, Brewster's daughter, Judy (Patsy Ruth Miller), comes home with her sweetheart, Elliot Owen (Antonio Moreno). Brewster senses that Owen is no good, and lets Judy know it. Judy reveals that she has already married him. Owen then confesses that he is the son of Mrs. Kent, which gives Brewster the opportunity to assert that he's just like his father. Owen is already in trouble and facing a jail term, and Brewster tells him that the only way to make good is to commit suicide. When Owen finds out that Judy is pregnant, he feels unworthy enough to actually leap off a cliff. The jump doesn't kill him, however, and after he heals, he proves his worth. Brewster finally welcomes him as his son-in-law. This unrealistic drama was based on the Saturday Evening Post story by May Edington.
