Belle Bennett stars as Odette, who early in life is forced to give up all dreams of love so that she can look after her irresponsible father (John St. Polis). Despite her "old maid" status, Odette lives her life vicariously through her younger sister Christiane (Reata Hoyt). Unfortunately, Christiane succeeds only in bringing scandal and disgrace to her family -- which, frankly, is precisely what her rakish father deserves. Meanwhile, Odette at last finds happiness in the arms of her family's attorney (Richard Tucker) who has long worshipped her from afar. The Lily is a slightly laundered adaptation of the stage play of the same name.
