People do all kinds of nutty things in this silent melodrama from producer/director Maurice Tourneur. Take Ramon Martinez (Earle Williams) for example: When Ramon's wife Alice (Jane Novak) is accused of adultery, the jealous husband simply hands over their young son Bobbie (Ben Alexander) to a band of gypsies -- to spite the presumably faithless wife, who was actually only trying to protect Ramon's sister Carmen (Carmelita Geraghty), a victim of blackmailer Harvey Clegg (Carl Miller). Ramon and Alice separate, and Carmen perishes in a shipwreck. Bobbie, now known as "Spuds," takes matters into his own hands, however, and successfully proves his mother's innocence, paving the way for forgiveness.
