Nellie Horton, when mistreated by her father, is taken in charge by Thomas Lipton. She grows up in
poverty not knowing her true identity as the heiress to her mother's millions. Upon the death of her
benefactor, she becomes a model in a fashionable shop. There she falls into the hands of her
mother's unscrupulous nephew, who contrives to do away with her in order to obtain her fortune.
His final plan to destroy her is foiled when her lover, Jack Carroll, rescues her from the tracks of a
speeding train. Finally, Nellie (Allyn Horton) is reunited with her mother and finds happiness.
