Christine Trevor (Gladys Walton) is a spoiled young society girl who completely neglects her father and her brothers and sister. When her indulgent father dies, she finds out that the family is nearly broke. Thinking only of herself, Christine considers marrying a social-climbing young man. A friend of the family, Dr. Paul Denton (Frederick Vogeding), talks her out of it and helps her create a home for her siblings out of the money they have left. Christine's better nature finally comes out and she dumps the social climber when she realizes his true character -- or lack of it. She also risks her life to rescue Joshua Barton (William Worthington), her crotchety old neighbor. Barton, it turns out, was the one who ruined her father (financially) because of an old grudge. Christine, however, wins his paternal affection. Denton's affection for Christine is something far more romantic, and eventually she comes to realize that she loves him, too.
