Mina Rogers (Mary MacLaren) is unfairly cast out into the cruel, cruel world by her crotchety old uncle. She searches for a new home, resorting to deception so that she will be taken in. Along the way she meets a doctor, certain mysteries surrounding her are solved, and the doctor asks her to marry him. The husband and wife filmmaking team of Phillips Smalley and Lois Weber were responsible for this film. Their specialty was socially conscious drama, but occasionally, as they did here, they focused their efforts elsewhere. Unfortunately, this maudlin, melodramatic dreck of a picture didn't do justice to anyone involved in its creation.
