The Palmer School of Photoplay Writing decided to try its hand at film production, and this drama was its first release. John Trevor (Lloyd Hughes) is shocked when he discovers that his mother (Myrtle Stedman) has been running a gambling den to put him through college. His sweetheart, Mary Heath (Lucille Ricksen), has a brother, Dave (Bruce Gordon), who is accidentally killed during a brawl at Mrs. Trevor's establishment. To atone for this, John takes Dave's position at the Heath farm. Ignoring the taunts of Bob Heath, Dave's overworked and resentful brother (George Hackathorne), John braves the abuses he receives at the farm. When John and his mother save Dave's twin children (Fay MacKenzie and Frankie Darro) during a blinding snowstorm, both mother and son redeem themselves in the eyes of the Heaths. After that, there is nothing standing in the way of John's romance with Mary.
