Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
A prison melodrama with a heart, Life's Mockery starred Betty Compson as Kit Miller, the daughter of notorious gangster Wolf Miller (Russell Simpson). Fleeing the law, Kit is knocked unconscious and brought to a prison whose warden, John Fullerton (Alec B. Francis, believes that criminals may be completely reformed under the proper environment. Suffering from amnesia, the girl is led to believe that the faint memories from her past are merely part of a feverish nightmare. The warden's son Wade (Theodore von Eltz) falls in love with the girl, but their idyll and her reformation are soon threatened by the re-emergence of Wolf Miller.
