Director Frank Beal lent some spirit to this routine three-reel drama. David Bucklin (Harry Mestayer) can no longer stand life with his father, an arrogant Southern plantation owner (William Sheerer), and leaves home. He uses his talents as a violinist to get work in vaudeville, where he befriends a couple who perform as gymnasts. When the pair die in an accident, Bucklin adopts their daughter Dorothy (Lillian Wade). He uses up most of the money he makes to give the girl an education, and because she shows vocal talent, he sends her to Europe to develop her voice. She becomes a prima donna, but Bucklin's situation goes downhill. After losing several jobs, he winds up starving in a tenement room. When Dorothy (now played as an adult by Marion Warner) comes to visit him, he gives his violin to a wealthy man for the temporary use of his mansion since he doesn't want Dorothy to know of his poverty. But Dorothy realizes that something is wrong and finds out the truth. She tracks down his real address, and explains that she has come to love him -- not as a daughter but as a woman. They marry, and shortly afterwards, Bucklin discovers that he has inherited his father's estate.
