This three-reel Lubin effort centers around a quarrelsome married couple and their beleaguered offspring. Finally reaching an impasse, the husband and wife separate; he takes custody of their son, while she assumes responsibility for their daughter. Fifteen years later, father and son have a terrific argument, culminating in the son walking out on his dad. Unable to locate his mother, the boy takes to drink and is soon a seedy derelict. He is rescued from this sorry state when he becomes one-half of a vaudeville act. Meanwhile, the father, now mortally ill, reconciles with his wife and daughter. His final request is that the two women seek out his long-lost son. The boy's vaudeville partner learns of this and decides to pass himself off as the son in hopes of inheriting the father's wealth. But the son sobers up long enough to find out what's going on, at which point he shows up at his mother's doorstep for an emotional reunion. As for the prevaricating partner, he reforms sufficiently to provide a romantic interest for the boy's sister. This film is listed in some sources under the title Regenerating Love.
