Though set in New York, Sacrifice of Pauline was rather obviously filmed in Paris. The title character is the trusted maidservant of a wealthy family. Alas, Pauline has a no-good son, a notorious underworld leader. Sonny boy kills his girlfriend, then steals the getaway money from the home of Pauline's employers. Loyal to the point of lunacy, Pauline not only takes the blame for the theft, but also for the girl's murder. After eight years in prison, she is freed, then manages to find a job at a florist's shop. Meanwhile, her son, now a prominent "society gangster," uses strong-arm tactics to force a wealthy woman into marrying him. The son orders a bouquet for his reluctant bride, and guess which flower shop gets the assignment? Finally conscience-stricken by what he has done to his mother, the son turns over a new leaf in the last reel, but not soon enough to spare him a "just desserts" demise.
