An impoverished waitress marries a rich college boy against the wishes of his parents. Shortly after bearing his son, the family begins pushing her out of the family, separating her from her son. Two decades later, the woman is a charwoman who scrubs the floors of her husband's alma mater. It is there that she encounters a handsome young college student who shares with her his romantic travails. It seems his father is pressuring him to dump his impoverished girl friend. Realizing that the distraught boy is her son, the woman selflessly offers him sage advice without revealing her identity.
