Robert annoys his father by his youthful carelessness and lack of interest in the business; consequently, the old man turns more favorably towards Allan. On a certain day, however, Allan, who has been misappropriating the office funds, is driven to forge his uncle's name to a check. Carol Amory, the stenographer in Rendall's office, tells Robert, who is in love with her, of Allan's unwelcome attentions. Robert seeks Allan and in a scuffle gets the better of him. Allan then tells his uncle of the existing affection between Robert and Carol, whereupon Rendall discharges the stenographer. Robert angrily tells him he will go with her. He does, and they are married soon after. Returning home later for his personal belongings, his father accosts him with the forged check which has been questioned at the bank. Allan calmly stands by and lets Robert bear the blame, and further shows his mean character by hounding Robert from one position to another, until the young couple are left penniless. His father regrets his hasty action. His wife realizing this, seeks out Carol and pleads with her to give up her son. Carol agrees to leave Robert. When Robert returns and learns of the hand his family had taken in his affair, he is enraged as well as grief-stricken over the disappearance of his wife. Then Allan's defalcations come to light and his low character revealed. He is dismissed by Rendall, who now realizes the unjustness of his attitude towards his son and the unworthiness of Allan. Carol and her baby are again sought for by Mrs. Rendall and together they bring Robert home and the two families are soon happily reunited. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
