He does not know that the reason for her apparent intimacy with Bertran, an artist and friend of Darby's is that Bertran is giving her painting lessons in secret, and that Mary is planning to surprise her husband with her talent. He takes their child, Marian, and leaves. The shock results in Mary's death. Years later Bertran has a pupil, Ralph Grove. He has met Marian in the remote country place where her half-crazed father has kept her in hiding since a child. One day he runs across her in the city and learns that her father, in a fit of insane rage, has driven her from home. She wishes to study art and Ralph takes her to Bertran. He thinks that he sees a resemblance between the girl and Mary Darby. Ralph and Bertran determine to unravel the mystery of Marian and her demented father. Meanwhile Ralph has ceased his attentions to Nina, a model, who tries in every way possible to come between him and Marian. Darby comes in search of his daughter. He is taking her home against her will when Ralph gives pursuit. Bertran follows. Ralph finds lodging for the night in Darby's cottage where he believes Marian is hidden. In the dead of night the ex-sculptor tries to kill the young stranger. Bertran arrives just in time to help his pupil grapple with the old man. Then, recognizing Darby, he recalls the past to him and his clouded mind clears. He learns that after all Mary was not unfaithful to him. Peace comes to his troubled spirit, and Ralph and Marian find happiness together. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
