Mary Miles Minter, once again a poor orphan girl, plays the role of Annie Johnson who is adopted by the wealthy Mrs. John Grant Nottingham. Unfortunately, Annie has only been adopted to spite Mrs. Nottingham's daughter in-law, Emily, who is presented as a bit of a scheming trouble maker. It's not long before our charming Mary wins the affection of Mrs. Nottingham, and becomes sole heir before the elderly woman's death.

Emily ultimately contests the will and wins. In the meantime, however, the deceased wealthy woman's son, Willard Nottingham, has fallen in love with Annie. The film concludes as he proposes to her.
