Before darkly handsome leading man Tyrone Power, there was his father, stage star Tyrone Power, Sr.. Power, Sr. had been a force in the theater for many years before silent films came along, and in 1915 (the year after his son was born) he was contracted to star in two pictures -- this one was the first. The boss of iron worker Roanoke Brooks (Power), is having an affair with his wife (Kathlyn Williams). Eventually she commits suicide and her lover dies in an accident. Roanoke lavishes all his love and attention on his daughter (Edith Johnson). As a young woman she goes to the West where she meets the son of the man who broke up her father's marriage. They fall in love and marry.
