As described in a film magazine review,[5] Selene Herrick's weakness for "things" she purchases at auctions brings about a quarrel with her husband John in 1907. He has hired a nurse, Annie Pogani, who runs off with the Herrick baby, Joan. John is under the impression that the child was taken away by Selene. The wife eventually returns and the loss of their child is disclosed. Raised in the East Side of New York City, after Annie's death Joan eventually obtains work as a cloak model and is eventually found by her parents.



The novel that the film was based upon written by Fannie Hurst won a $50,000 contest conducted by Liberty in connection with Paramount Pictures, and was serialized by the magazine in 1926 when the film was released.[5] Theater operators were encouraged to reference the magazine and prize when advertising the film.[5]
