Molly Shine (Blanche Sweet) is a modest young girl who comes from an unhappy family -- her father Samuel (Herbert Grimwood) is a drunk, and her mother (Mayme Kelso) spends her time bemoaning her sad fate. But Molly's life turns around when she meets a nice biologist, Henry (Charles Meredith), who turns out to be the Duke of Wynninghame. They fall in love and marry, much to her parents' surprise, and to his sister's dismay. Lady Octavia (Kate Lester), the Duke's sister, does everything she can to snub the working class girl, until Molly decides to bolt. But eventually she and the Duke are happily reunited.
