~Plot Synopsis~
Although Dustin Farnum continued to star in pictures for a couple more years (illness would pretty
much sideline him after 1924), this hackneyed drama didn't exactly enhance his popularity. Angus
MacDonald (Farnum) is a rich Canadian lumberman who falls in love with Ruth Mayo, a cabaret
dancer (Doris Pawn). Right away they have problems because he loves nature and wide-open spaces
while she's a dyed-in-the-wool city girl. MacDonald is the one who gives in, and he and his wife move
to New York City. When a strike threatens his company, he has to go back to Canada. Ruth, who is
lonely and bored, accepts a dancing engagement in Europe. The couple winds up being separated for
six years. When MacDonald finds his little daughter dancing in the Grand Palais -- the same place
where her mother debuted -- he tracks Ruth down and the family is reunited.
