Cast & Crew
Although she is in love with Kenneth McLane, a poor draftsman, Mary Stevens decides to marry Chester James, a young lawyer whose practice pays for his cigarettes while his mother pays for his yacht. When she tells Ken, he reproaches her for selling out and goes off to the oil fields alone. After Chester and Mary are married, his mother, upon whom they are financially dependent, dictates their every action, going so far as to forbid them to have children. Mary insists that they try to make it on their own, and they move out, but Chester soon returns to his mother, leaving Mary with an unborn child and unpaid bills. When the baby is born, it is put up for adoption and, unknown to Mary, is given a home with Ken, who has returned a millionaire from the oil fields. Mary disappears and is missing for 5 years. Ken finally finds her in a driving snowstorm on Christmas Eve, and he unites her with the little girl she has never seen.
