This homespun little drama is nicely done, though unoriginal. Dan and Hester Taylor (Orville Caldwell and Renée Adorée) are a young married couple who make their home in the country. Dan is struggling as a farmer, and although Hester loves him, she yearns for something more. That "something more" is symbolized by the train that barrels through the town at 6:50 every evening on its way to the city. One night the train wrecks and three passengers with minor injuries are brought to the Taylor's farm. One of them, a widow, invites Hester to come to New York and visit her, so Hester finally gets her wish. But when she arrives she realizes that she got more than she bargained for. She meets up with one of the other passengers, lawyer Mark Rutherford (Niles Welch), and he chases after her. Meanwhile, back at home, Dan senses that their drab home life could chase his wife away permanently, so he works hard, builds a creamery, and becomes a force in the community. Hester, who has already begun to view her old home a lot more positively, returns much more appreciative of her life on the farm.
