Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Ralph Morgan (Melvin Mayo) callously leaves his actress wife, Fadette Devore (Adda Gleason). While manning a bucket shop, he meets the rich Marian Day (Helen Eddy) and steals her away from her reporter sweetheart, Guy Darwin (L.C. Shumway). Morgan is about to marry Marian when Darwin locates Fadette, who is about to kill herself because she is pregnant and has no means of support. They halt the wedding, and Morgan is sent to prison for his crooked business practices. Fadette dies after giving birth and Marian and Darwin, who marry, take care of the child, Hope (Ruth Hyatt). In prison, Morgan becomes a dope fiend and escapes. He locates the Darwin home and, for revenge, kidnaps Hope and leaves her in a mine which is about to be blown up. But when he tells the Darwins of his deed, they reveal that Hope is his daughter. So Morgan dashes back to save the girl, but after freeing the child, he collapses and dies when the mine explodes. Hope goes back to the Darwins, never to know the true identity of her father.
