Although it was made by one of the many small independent film companies floating around during the silent era, and the plot wasn't much to speak of, this romantic drama nevertheless had a good cast. When Burton J. Warburton (George Fawcett) dies, he doesn't leave much for his widow (Marie R. Burke) and daughter, Eleanor (Dorothy Mackaill), to live on. The scheming Gerry Patten (Warner Richmond) has already convinced Eleanor to marry him, but he suggests that she first wed the wealthy Dean Deland (Wyndham Standing) and then divorce him so that the resulting settlement will set them up in style. Deland, however, discovers this plot and, after shipping the mother off to Palm Beach, he takes Eleanor and Patten to a small tropical island. They stay there for a year, during which Eleanor realizes that Patten is worthless and that Deland is a real man. As a result, she sticks with her husband.
