Cast & Crew
Because he wants to remove anything that will remind him of his wife's infidelity, Richard Stanley sends his infant daughter Nan to a woman named Mrs. Hopkins. Stanley sends money for Nan's support, but never visits her and thus is unaware that she is treated as a slave by Mrs. Hopkins, who keeps all of the money herself. Nan's only happiness comes from her love for Hal, a young reporter. Fearful of losing her servant, Mrs. Hopkins tells Nan that there is mulatto blood in her veins. Crushed by the lie, Nan flees from the only home she has ever known. Ignorant of the world, she is carried by the tide of events unknowingly into what is termed a "matrimonial" agency, but which is in reality something worse. Nan is placed at auction and her own father bids for her against other millionaires. As he outbids them, Hal, who has traced her, enters just in time to reveal to Stanley that Nan is his own daughter.
