Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
A wealthy father turns his back on his son after he marries a woman whose mother is a bordello madame in this routine melodrama. Charlie Jordan (Lloyd Hughes) weds Jocelyn Margot (Doris Kenyon), much to the consternation of his father John (Hobart Bosworth). Charlie and his bride travel to a South Seas island where he takes a job on a plantation. Jeffrey Wingate (Frank Mayo) is sent by the elder Jordan to try to buy off Jocelyn and keep her out of the family. She refuses and soon gives birth to a son. Charlie dies and Jocelyn and her child return to San Francisco. She seeks vengeance by re-opening her mother's bordello and inviting John and his society friend to the event in an attempt to humiliate and discredit him. Joceyln backs down from the plan and earns the respect of her father-in-law, who gives his blessing for her to marry his personal secretary Wingate. Anna Q. Nilsson, Dorothy Brock, and Myrtle Stedman co-star.
