Margaret Kennard takes her baby daughter Agnes and leaves her husband Eustace for James Carroll. Upon discovering that Carroll is a thief, she leaves him, joins the Salvation Army and places Agnes in a convent. Twenty years pass. Agnes marries young Congressman Blake, and Eustace has become a priest. Carroll is now a lobbyist trying to prevent Blake from passing an anti-profiteering bill. Attempting to help her husband by proving that Carroll is a scoundrel, Agnes goes to Carroll's house. Eustace hears of her intentions and follows. Blake and Margaret also arrive, and Agnes is informed of her mother's true identity. Margaret then recognizes Eustace and the family is reconciled.
