Blanche Sweet has a dual role in this picture -- she plays twin sisters, Edith, a -- ahem! -- sweet, normal young girl, and Grace, who is a drug fiend. They live in poverty with their parents and their father (Hal Clements) finally finds work. Because he is faithful to his boss (Thomas Meighan), he is offered a partnership. The boss also falls in love with Edith, but Grace gets in the way -- through her lies and manipulations, she makes Edith look like the one who's the drug addict. In a Chinatown opium den, the girls' identities are cleared up and Edith is united with her sweetheart. Japanese actor Sessue Hayakawa, not yet a star, has a notable part as the keeper of the opium den.
