This melodrama of the English upper class was independently made. Sir Melmoth Craven (Rockliffe Fellows) is running against John Orme (Robert Ames) for a seat in Parliament. Orme is an honest man, but Craven is on the shady side. For campaign money, he borrows money from an equally shady establishment called Gordon, Ltd. Orme's sweetheart, Margaret Garth (Vera Reynolds), becomes infatuated with Craven, much to the dismay of her mother, Enid (Dorothy Phillips). Mrs. Garth sits her daughter down and relates the story of how Craven had viciously mistreated her 20 years previously. Enid, it turns out, is actually the one behind Craven's loan, and she uses it to wreak revenge on him. Without warning, she calls in the loan and Craven kidnaps Margaret. Orme comes to her rescue and Craven is thrown in jail, his reputation irreparably destroyed. Margaret and Orme, meanwhile, are happily reunited.
