After Holmes, Violet's trustee, misinvests her money, she finds herself penniless and goes to live with Molly's family. James, the innocent primary beneficiary of Violet's financial misfortune, quietly arranges a trust fund for her while she discovers that Molly actually is James's lost daughter from an early tragic marriage. The young couple and Madge set out to reunite Violet with her money, and in the process, James learns the truth about Molly. After a series of misunderstandings, James and Violet agree to wed and a new family is born.
