Mae Busch and Owen Moore star in this tale of redemption. Robert Morton (Moore) becomes involved with Dora Malcolm (Dorothy King), a grafter, and she encourages him to forge his father's name on a check. He is caught and his father (Burr McIntosh) allows him to go to jail. Two years later, Robert is released and he winds up down and out in a dive on the Barbary Coast. There he meets Camille (Busch), one of the women there, and she inspires him to straighten out his life. After much effort, he lands work and earns back his self-respect, all with Camille's love and encouragement. Morton senior seeks out his son to ask for forgiveness. He tries to convince Robert to leave Camille, but Robert refuses and claims that they are already married. Morton learns to appreciate everything that Camille has done for his boy, and he accepts both of them into his life.
