This plodding melodrama fails to measure up to the original 1917 version directed by Charles Giblyn. Mildred Gower (Alma Rubens) is a young woman who marries an old sea captain to save her mother (Eugenie Besserer) from losing the family home. A young physician who loves her accuses her of selling herself to the old salt and peppers her with questions. Her husband conveniently drowns at sea, leaving Mildred free to pursue romance with the dashing doctor. William Walsh, Freeman Wood, and Otto Hoffman co-star with Frank Mayo, Lloyd Whitlock, and Wilfred Lucas in this inferior remake.
