Two cousins, Dulce and Cassy (Katherine), marry into differing stations in life: Dulce weds Morado, a wealthy Spanish aristocrat, and Cassy falls in love with Dan Wallace, the family chauffeur. Cassy's father orders them to leave his home, and they are married at Don Morado's estate. Dan refuses Morado's offer of a farm as a wedding gift, preferring to make his own way, but after 5 years he fails to rise further than a stevedore, while Cassy bears him two children and is ever faithful and loving. Finally, he accepts Morado's offer, and they take along with them their former landlady and nurse, Mrs. Harney. Against his better judgment, Dan falls in love with Dulce; and when Morado dies, the two of them go to Paris. As Dan is about to divorce his wife, he is conscience-striken by memories of his family and returns to them.
