Polly Pearl (Norma Talmadge) is a bar manager who doubles as a cabaret performer in this romantic melodrama taken from the play by Martin Brown. The wealthy society swell Leonard St. Aubyns (Wallace McDonald) falls in love with Polly and the two are soon wed. Leonard's wealthy father (Brandon Hurst) disowns the couple, forcing Polly back to work after her husband leaves her with a baby boy. She takes a job with Madame Blanche (Emily Fitzroy), who employs her in a brothel as a cabaret singer. Polly inherits money when the kindly Madame Blanche dies and she opens her own club. Years later, two British soldiers enter the club, and the drunk one starts a fight with his cohort. When both are wounded by gunfire, Polly tends to their injuries and discovers the man who tried to stop the fight is her own long-lost son. Watch for legendary screen villain Walter Long as Blackie co-starring with Margaret Seddon, George Hackathorne, and Alf Goudling.
