Railroad worker Beppo Puccini (Charles West) seeks to please his young daughter Marie by proposing to Bianca Pastorell (Signe Auen), whom the child adores. Bianca however misunderstands and assumes Puccini is joking with her. The crushed Puccini observes his foreman, Sam Coggini (Tom Wilson), in a close conversation with Bianca, and leaps to the conclusion that he is a rival for her affection. Puccini then attempts to murder Coggini by planting a bomb outside Bianca's house. But when he discovers that Coggini is actually her brother, he ends his lethal plot and is able to win the hand of Bianca, who at last becomes a mother to little Marie. Note actress Signe Auen, who soon thereafter changed her name to Seena Owen; after a noteworthy career acting in silents, she became a successful writer for talkies, including director Edward G. Ulmer's memorable 1947 concert fest Carnegie Hall. 15/2rl
