In this syrupy tear-jerker a young girl is adopted by the judge who sent her daddy to prison. The father agreed to this relationship and soon the aging judge becomes very fond of his new charge. Unfortunately, his love for her blinds him to mounting evidence attesting to her real father's innocence and whenever the convict comes up for parole, the judge denies it. Frustrated and desperate to see his child, the convict finally engineers an escape and then heads for the judge's home for revenge. But after spying upon the older man and his daughter and seeing how happy she has become, the convict's heart changes and he selflessly returns to the pen to serve his sentence.
