In this drama a pianist-composer falls in love with the charwoman who cleans his boardinghouse room. Eventually, she too, falls in love with him. Trouble comes when he finds that he can no longer pay his rent for although he is talented, he refuses to write popular songs and is therefore, always broke. Finally, his patience pays off and he is commissioned to write an opera. Meanwhile the maid inherits a vast fortune. Unfortunately, this frightens the prideful composer away for he does not want people believing that he only married her for her money. Although his opera is successful, the man is terribly unhappy. He then journey's to the cottage where he met his love. Surprisingly, she is there too. Happiness ensues.
