Synopsis

Following the death of Rand, a wealthy reformed criminal, his family moves to the city, and Rand, Jr., becomes a candidate for mayor. Mrs. Rand neglects her family to pursue social ambitions, and Hannock, a dope fiend, dupes Cicely into a marriage. Hannock, who has caused the death of Rand, Sr., and knows of his past, blackmails the politically ambitious son, George. Eventually awakened to his sense of responsibility and self-respect, George faces up to the villain, whose suicide precipitates the family's return to its village environment.
