Richard (Herbert Rawlinson), the son of Judge Garbin (David Torrence), is railroaded into prison. He angrily swears vengeance against Corton (Mike Donlin), the man who sent him and his prison mate up the river. Escaping, he returns to his father, who sends him to finish out his prison term at the home of Hugh Dunster (Alfred Fisher). Dunster forces him to do a lot of menial labor around the lonely mansion, but somehow he still finds the time to fall in love with the man's daughter Joan (Esther Ralston). Through Joan's good influence, he decides to drop his plan of vengeance, and Garbin sends his son on a boat to South America, where he can start his life anew. Mike Donlin -- the film's heavy -- was a former ballplayer for the Giants.
