Synopsis by Janiss Garza

Mercenary James Rallston (Theodore Babcock) marries a widow (Julia Stewart) so that he can get his hands on her fortune. When he's unsuccessful, he gets her committed to an asylum with the help of an unscrupulous doctor and nurse. For fifteen years, Rallston lives well on his wife's money but he loses his daughter's fortune in stock speculations. He asks his friend Bigelow (Nat Goodwin) for help. But while Bigelow dives into the market and makes the girl's money back, he knows there's something fishy about Rallston. He disguises himself and rescues Mrs. Rallston from the asylum. The doctor flees, and Rallston dies in a car accident. Mrs. Rallston is reunited with her daughter (Florence Malone), who marries architect Ed Pembroke (Carroll Fleming). Fleming wrote the play on which this film was based, and Nat Goodwin was also Bigelow in the stage version.
