Nine-year-old Nedda (Madge Evans) is a direct descendant of the Trevors, a family that can trace its roots back to the reign of King Charles I. Alas, the Trevors suffer severe financial reverses, and Nedda is yanked from the luxury of her ancestral home in Britain to be raised on New York's Lower East Side. Ten years later, the grown-up Nedda (Barbara Castleton) stands accused of the murder of her mother. How this came about, and who really "done it," is revealed through a prismatic series of flashbacks. A hint: Nedda's veddy proper father Ralph is not all that he seems.
