Elliott Dexter stars in this drama, which was made by his own production company. When Lorraine Meade (Mildred Harris) is forced to quit her job with powerful political leader Johnson Trent (Anders Randolph), he believes that Austin Farrol (Dexter) has "stolen" her. Lorraine has merely sought shelter from Farrol, who runs a mission, but Trent frames him and has him sent to jail. Farrol, however, has faith that he will be spared incarceration, and he is when the train that's taking him to jail wrecks. Everyone else on board is killed, so he takes the identity of another man, shaves off his beard, and goes to work for Trent, who doesn't recognize him. Farrol works his spiritual magic on Trent, and he saves his daughter, Betty (Jeanne Carpenter), from becoming a cripple through faith healing. The grateful Trent finally confesses his wrongdoing, so Farrol is exonerated. Meanwhile, Lorraine has come to the realization that she loves Farrol, and they are united. Fledgling director Josef von Sternberg worked on the screenplay to this film.
