Storyline

Jim Nolan and his partner, Mart, are doing time for the robbery of Bolland's bank. The banker's daughter, Mary, while doing criminal reform work, becomes interested in Jim. Influenced by her wholesome personality, Jim is inspired to "go straight." At the expiration of his term, Mary uses her social influence to get him a position and help him make good. Jim is promoted rapidly, but the stigma of "jailbird" sticks to him and the instinct to steal is revived. Fearing that he will yield, Jim appeals to his one friend, Mary, to help him in his fight against temptation. She does so. The proud old banker disapproves of his daughter's growing friendship with the "jailbird," but Mary stands by Jim. The friendship of Mary and Jim ripens into love. Bolland disowns his daughter. She marries Jim. In his loneliness the banker regrets his action and tries to win Mary away from Jim. To do this he causes him to lose his position and hounds him from place to place, using his influence to discredit Jim... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

This two-reel offering makes a strong plea for a better treatment of ex-convicts. Ben Wilson plays the part of a young man falsely imprisoned. He is released for good behavior, but hounded by his former employer, whose daughter he loves. He commits a real crime as a result, is imprisoned again, escapes and kills his persecutor. Mr. Wilson does some very impassioned acting in several scenes. The whole production is strongly presented and makes a good offering of its type, despite its tragic close. - The Moving Picture World, January 2, 1915
