Herbert Blache wrote and directed this unoriginal comedy-drama. It's the usual tale about the wealthy orphan whose evil guardian wants to get his hands on her money. In this case the orphan is named Alice Rowland (Catherine Calvert), and the evil guardian is George Baring (A. Lloyd Lack). In these tales it's generally the guardian who tries to marry the girl himself, but here, Baring tries to force his son, James (Eugene Borden), on poor Alice. Henry Whitworth, an old friend of Alice's family (Richard Tucker), is watching all this with disapproval. Since he wants what's best for Alice, he does all he can to stop Baring. Baring, in turn, locks Alice up in her room to keep her away from Whitworth. But she escapes and runs to Whitworth's home. They realize that legally Baring can come and claim her at any time. Alice decides to solve this dilemma by marrying Whitworth. With the ceremony accomplished, Baring's guardianship is no longer valid.
