Son of Destiny was a multireel issue from Denmark's Nordisk company. During an unspecified war, a young soldier reluctantly arrests the father of his sweetheart on a charge of sabotage. Taking pity on the old man, the soldier permits his prisoner to escape. As a result, the soldier is courtmartialed and executed. The moral of the film seemed to be that no good deed goes unpunished. The reviewer for Variety could not discern any reason for the film's being, and was particularly upset at the graphic depiction of the hero's death.
