Synopsis

Tommy O'Day, an Irish lad with a golden voice who lives on the Lower East Side of New York, is unjustly accused by his father of stealing the family savings. Tommy leaves home and meets up with Joe Bush, a press agent who gets him a job singing in a cabaret. Tommy is a success and soon obtains a leading part in a Broadway revue. As the curtain is about to rise on opening night, however, Tommy receives word from his sweetheart, Rose Lyndon, that his mother, whom he has not seen since leaving home, is apparently dying. Tommy deserts the show and goes to her bedside, bringing her back to life and health with a beautiful song. Tommy's mother completely recovers, and he is excused by the revue manager. Tommy becomes a star.
