Synopsis

Rhoda Williams, an orphan who is the mistress of Dr. Littlefield, sees a crippled man restored to health by Michaelis, a young shepherd who has the power of divine healing, and flees to the home of her invalid aunt, Mary Beeler. She summons Michaelis, who cures the woman of her paralysis, and Rhoda tells him of her wasted life. Michaelis falls in love with her, but when called to cure a woman's sick baby he fails and attributes his loss of power to Rhoda. Ultimately, she convinces him that his failure was the result of his lack of faith in the strength of love, and he is then able to restore the baby to health.
