Sally (ZaSu Pitts) is a poor girl living on the east side of New York who runs away to become a dancing girl for an organ grinder, Antonio (Edward Delavanti). They roam the country, making a few cents here and there, but the organ grinder dies, and Sally finds that her only friend is a farm hand, Billy (Tom Gallery). Carnsworth, a rich banker (Jack Pratt), is trying to track down his child, who has been missing for 19 years, and he believes that Sally is her. So he takes the girl home and she lives in luxury until she discovers that Carnsworth's real child is Billy. So Billy takes his rightful place in the Carnsworth home, but Sally joins as daughter-in-law. This was an early starring vehicle for ZaSu Pitts, but her unconventional looks and fine comic timing were already drawing attention.
