Hagar (Olga Petrova), a Gypsy woman, wants to give her baby girl a better life, so she leaves her on the doorstep of a Quaker family. The girl, Eve (Petrova again), grows up to find Quaker life rather dull. Worldly mill owner Arthur Brandon (Arthur Hoops, who died before the film's release) seems more interesting so she marries him. But Brandon, it turns out, is a drunk and Eve soon makes the acquaintance of Robert Blair (William Hinkley), who is investigating Brandon's mills. One of the mill children is blinded in an accident, and its father attacks Brandon. The man is arrested, and Eve leaves to devote herself to charity. When the father gets out of jail, he finds Brandon and finishes him off, leaving Eve free to marry Blair.
