The scene is a small, upstate New York town, where resentment of "outsiders" is par for the course. Into this hostile territory comes heroine Belle Bennett, the wife of a bank clerk who has been falsely imprisoned for embezzlement. Shunned by the locals, Bennett befriends the town drunk, the only person who has extended her any sort of kindness. She takes it upon herself to reform the man's bibulous ways, little dreaming that he is the man who committed the crime for which her husband was jailed. The conscience-stricken alcoholic finally confesses, opening the door for a happy ending.
