Paramount Studios spared no expense on this propaganda film extoling the virtues of the Salvation Army -- and they even gave it solid entertainment value. After an introduction illustrating the founding of the Salvation Army in London during the latter half of the 19th century, it goes on to tell the fictional story of Elizabeth (Catherine Calvert). It includes her redemption through the organization and how she, and several of those close to her, gave service overseas during the Great War. Evangeline Booth, then commander of the American branch of the group, appears in several scenes. The studio donated all the profits from the original New York run of the film to the Salvation Army.
