Renee Browning (Marjorie Rambeau) is cast out of her home by her irrationally jealous husband (Frederick Burton). With nowhere to go, she turns her hobby of reading cards into a profession as a fortune teller and joins the circus. Over the years she is overwhelmed by her misery and sinks to drunken depths (clearly this is a familiar cinematic tale). But she crosses paths with her now-grown son Stephen (Raymond McKee) and it turns out that her encouragement is far more helpful to him than anything his father does or says. The young man makes a success of himself and this inspires Renee to pull herself together. This not-terribly original picture was based on the play by Leighton Graves Osmon.
