In this drama, a hard working printer gets wanderlust, leaves his wife and family, and hits the road. Ten years pass. His wife has become a prominent citizen and runs a big newspaper. He returns, impoverished, and though bitter, she gives him a job as her house servant so he can be near his daughters. Meanwhile, she is being harassed by local mobsters who wreck her printing press to put her out of business. Her estranged husband saves the day, by operating a hand press to help her put out a special edition. Sparks begin to fly, and she comes to forgive him.
