Released on the same reel as One-Legged Acrobats, Pathe's Her Sister's Sin was an unabashed tearjerker. The film opens with a deathbed scene, as an unwed mother is informed that she will die without providing her child with a name. The poor woman's sister undertakes the task of raising the illegitimate kid, all the while pursuing a chaste romance with the handsomest man in town. When the local gossips spot the heroine caring for the child, they assume the worst and begin spreading ugly rumors. As a result, the girl's sweetheart leaves her flat, taking up with a rival beauty. Everything is explained at the end, at which point the super-judgmental hero does a complete about-face.
