Toward the end of the 1910s, it seemed like every star had to do one film in which he or she played a dual role. Mae Marsh got her chance in this one. Peggy Murray (Marsh) works at a newspaper stand until one day, she's spied by Dr. Granville (Alec B. Francis). Peggy, it turns out, is a dead ringer for the daughter of a patient of his, Mrs. Tredway Parke (Florida Kingsley). The girl, Louise (Marsh again), had been lost when the ship she was on sunk. To save Mrs. Parke the pain of losing her child, the doctor asks Peggy to take Louise's place. She does, and during this time she meets and falls in love with George Landis (Rod La Roque). But one day Louise shows up, and Peggy steals away so that Mrs. Parke may never know. But her romance isn't over -- she encounters Landis once again, and they marry. On their honeymoon, they meet up with Louise, her new husband, and Mrs. Parke in an interesting type of reunion.
