Two Dutchmen, kindhearted Jan Saxe (vaudevillian Lee Kohlmar in his motion picture debut) and ambitious Peter Harlingen (Rudolph Christians) immigrate to America. On the voyage over they both fall in love with the same girl, but Peter wins her. The self-sacrificing Jan gives his all to help them get started in life. But the young woman dies, leaving a little girl, Bertha. As she grows to womanhood (to be played by Gladys Walton), Jan becomes as devoted to her as her father. When she is old enough to be married, Peter wants to see her wed a wealthy young man, but Bertha is in love with a boy of more modest means. Jan helps convince his old pal that Bertha should marry whoever she wants.
