An all-star cast (by Ince Productions standards, that is) distinguished the domestic drama Home. Bessie Barriscale plays Bessie Wheaton, the daughter of a blue-collar family that suddenly inherits a fortune. Almost immediately, the Wheatons begin comporting themselves in the most vulgar and obnoxious manner possible. The worst of the lot is Bessie's brother Bob (Charles Ray), who begins squandering his time and money on cheap chorus girl Daisy Flores (Louise Glaum). The only member of the family who keeps her feet on the ground is Bessie, and it is she who brings the rest of the clan to its senses -- beginning with boorish Bob.
