Sir Stephen O'Neill, a wealthy Irishman (Eric Mayne), disowns his daughter Patricia (Eileen Percy) when she marries beneath her station. Her husband (Leslie Casey) is arrested, and she goes to the States. She dies, leaving her little daughter in the care of Mike Rorke, an old sailor (Frank Clark). Years later the girl, Patsy, now grown (and played by Percy), is running a newsstand owned by Rorke and Sir Stephen has come to regret the harsh way he treated his daughter. He decides to hunt down his granddaughter and enlists the help of his nephew, Arthur Hawks (Francis Feeney), to find her. A friend of Patsy's hears of the search and decides to pass the girl off as the heiress. Arthur returns to Ireland with Patsy, who is falling in love with him and beginning to regret the sham. But after confessing, she discovers that she really is the girl Sir Stephen was looking for after all.
