A young man, George Turner (Richard Barthelmess), finds work as a gardener and falls in love with his employer's pretty daughter Lucy (Evelyn Greeley). In lieu of an engagement ring, George gives Lucy his one valuable possession, an antique necklace given to him by his mother on her deathbed. But Lucy's father, Stephen Winter (Charles Wellesley) recognizes the necklace -- his wife gave it to a man he then sent to prison on a trumped up manslaughter charge. So Winter discharges George, but that night he mulls over his past and the man he wronged, who happens to be George's father (Pedro de Cordoba). When he goes home, George finds a letter from his father revealing Winter's part in having him convicted and he determines to seek revenge. But when he gets to the Winter mansion, he feels sorry for the old man, who now fully regrets what he has done. Winter contacts the governor and has George's father released, and the two men meet with each other. They now have a bond in the union of their two children.
