Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Mrs. Drake (Eleanor Hancock) wants her daughter Millicent (Alma Rubens) to marry effete society man Van Tyle (Robert McKim). But when she visits Van Tyle's lodge in the mountains, Millicent meets manly mine owner Carson Stewart (William Desmond). When Stewart saves her from a mine explosion, they fall in love and marry as soon as they return East. He wants to start a family, but Mrs. Drake discourages Millicent from this plan. Stewart uncovers his mother-in-law's influence and lashes into both of them before leaving for the West once again. The couple's estrangement is resolved when Millicent shows up on his doorstep some months later with a baby.
