Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Parental indiscretions break up a marriage in this rare surviving melodrama directed by King Vidor. Upon learning that her new husband John Trott (Lloyd Hughes) is the son of a notorious woman, Tilly (Madge Bellamy) is all too easily persuaded by her father (Frank Brownlee) to leave home and hearth. Believing that John has perished in a train wreck, a reluctant Tilly agrees to marry old beau Joel Epperson (Joseph Bennett). But when circumstances bring Tilly and a very much alive John back together, a rather accommodating Joel opts to commit suicide. In the end, Liz Trott (Claire McDowell) proves not to be John's mother after all and Tilly and John are reunited with everyone's blessings.
