Synopsis by Janiss Garza
In this tale, Virginia Clerson (Anne Cornwall) is a girl of the tenements. Her father (J. Farrell McDonald) is a drunk, her brother a liar, and her sister (Claire Anderson) seeks a life of glamour and ease. But Virginia wants something different, so she strikes out on her own and finds work in a millinery factory. She works hard, and eventually she gains the attention of her boss, Parker (Edward Coxen), both in business and in love. Meanwhile, her sister has sunk even lower on the social scale and is now a scrubwoman. Virginia saves her from her wretched life, and the sister, in turn, saves Virginia when their brother comes around and tries to make trouble. This picture was Anne Cornwall's first starring vehicle.
