In this sad melodrama, a kindly and popular old lady who owns the town candy shop inherits a modest fortune and finds herself set upon by greedy villains. To get her money, they force a young man to masquerade as the woman's lost son. Unfortunately for them, the young man is basically a decent sort, and when he falls in love with the vicar's daughter, he decides to abandon the cruel scam. He then goes to the lady and tells the bitter truth. She gently tells him that she knew that from the start. She forgives him and happiness ensues.
