A domestic drama about a simple man, Johns, who suddenly finds himself wealthy with the aid of successful speculator Drayton. Just as suddenly, Johns is ruined financially when it is revealed that Drayton and he have invested in fraudulent securities. Unable to accommodate a return to a

lesser lifestyle, Johns commits forgery and is imprisoned. Drayton, also ruined, kills himself. Johns' daughter pulls the family out of its penury by marrying a wealthy socialite. Lackluster writing and unsympathetic characters make this a dull drama.
