She has given her heart to a young mountaineer known as "Cliff." They have the consent of her father, who tells Cliff to "come for her when the gentle band of time has ripened their love." Jack Rance, of the city, an unscrupulous villain, visits the neighborhood of John Doran. He meets June and is attracted by her. June is taken by the manners of the city gentleman. They meet clandestinely. He persuades her to leave her home and go with him to the city. June writes a letter to her old father and leaves with Rance. Rance, on arriving in the city, takes June to a house of the underworld. Here the vice of the underworld opens her eyes and she realizes what a man this Rance is. By the help of a woman, she escapes the same evening and starts for home. June arrives home and sees through the window her father seated by the table reading his Bible. She hesitates, knocks and patiently waits until the loving arms of her aged father draw her back into the modest cabin. Cliff, through the window, can see June clasped in the arms of her father. He passes out into the night, but there is a happy smile on his face. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
