A damsel in distress named Charity takes refuge in the Truhart's house during a raging blizzard. She is trying to escape from the perfidious Warrington Chadbourne, after her because she is the heir to a huge railroad fortune. Chadbourne wants to marry her and then do her in for the money. Charity falls in love with Tyrone Truhart, who forthwith proposes. Charity thinks she has a sordid past so she declines. Tyrone remains indefatigable in his devotion, even when Chadbourne accuses her of having an illegitimate child. Charity leaves with the child and winds up on the Bowery, pursued hotly by Tyrone and Chadbourne. Chadbourne finds her first and threatens to kill the child unless she marries him. Will Tyrone come to the rescue in time? Is Charity the daughter of Slick Annie, the Fence, or someone else? This is a delightful new old time melodrama.
