The three most popular actors of the Los Angeles-based Selig Polyscope Company -- Kathlyn Williams, Hobart Bosworth, and Harold Lockwood -- starred in this moralistic melodrama directed by Francis J. Grandon. Williams is not only crippled in an accident but loses her callous fiance (Lockwood). Ironically, he, too, suffers injuries in yet another accident and Kathlyn almost accepts his proposal of marriage. In the last minute, however, she realizes how selfish the youngster really is and weds instead the stolid older gentleman (Bosworth), who had always loved her from afar.
