Rosamond Athelstane (Anita Stewart) has been raised in a convent, ignorant of the fact that the woman who claims to be her guardian (Myrtle Stedman) is actually her mother. Because of her sinful life, she has been keeping this fact a secret. When Rosamond discovers that this supposed guardian runs a gambling den, she is so shocked that she breaks all ties with her. A year or so passes and Rosamond manages to become a highly successful actress. She falls in love with Ned Annesley (James Morrison). She doesn't realize that Ned is the adopted son of Brabazon, the father she never knew (Ralph Lewis). There is much antagonism between Brabazon and Rosamond until everyone's identities are sorted out. The only character who doesn't end the film happily is the mother, who dies for her wicked life. Sidney Grundy's novel was shot once before, in 1916.
