Manson, a servant (Jean Hersholt), comes to work for a curate, William Smythe (Edward Piel). The curate has spent his life pretending to be one of the elite, when he actually worked his way up from the gutter with the help of his brother, Robert Smith, a drain man (Jack Curtis). He now refuses to acknowledge his common beginnings, or his brother. Manson, a powerful believer in the brotherhood of man, teaches the curate about real faith and truth. This picture showed the division between real Christian values and organized religion, something that was not often discussed in its day. It was adapted from the play by Charles Rann Kennedy.
