This Vitagraph one-reeler was an unsteady combination of high comedy and stark tragedy. A husband callously deserts his wife, who in turn, abandons her baby. The infant is discovered by a passing bachelor, who decides to adopt the kid for his own. Alas, it appears as though the hero will have to give up the child, but this dilemma is solved when the parents conveniently die. One of the death scenes was described as "ghastly" by the reviewer for Variety, though it was probably a model of decorum by modern-day standards.
