Synopsis:
John Thorpe puts his grandaughter, Faith (played by Mary Miles Minter), into an orphanage after the death of the son-in-law whom he has never approved of, telling his daughter, Helen, that the girl has also died. Fast forward 15 years and Faith, now a young woman, is employed in the old mans home as a servant although their identities are unknown to each other.

John Thorpe's stepdaughter, Helen (played by Mary's real-life sister Margaret Shelby), attempts to steal some money to pay for an unexpected problem. Faith reluctantly agrees to take the fall for Helen. While in court for the charges, a young lawyer, Mark Strong, not only proves the innocence of Faith, but also reveals her true identity. All is happy as Faith is reunited with her mother.
