The central character in this Selig tearjerker is little Buddy, a crippled boy saddled with a drunken lout of a father. When his wife kicks the tosspot out of the house, Buddy faithfully tags along with his father, appointing himself his daddy's "guardian." The father tries his best to reform, but the lure of liquor proves too strong. When papa is incapacitated in an accident, Buddy keeps the wolf from the door by securing work as a newsboy. Alas, soon Buddy is run over by a truck, ending up in the same hospital ward as his injured father. By an amazing coincidence, Buddy's mother is working in the selfsame hospital as a nurse. The bittersweet ending was the best part of the picture.
