When Hilary dies of a heart attack, Pansy is left to face the unwelcome attentions of scoundrel Gaylor Duckworth, the family lawyer, who wants the Paine fortune. Pansy spurns him and he frames her on a murder charge. In order to save her little daughter's fair name, Pansy makes the supreme sacrifice by leaving home. After a year of longing she returns, heavily veiled and determined to get a glimpse of her beloved babe.
