Steve Wilson (Carl Winterhoff), a wealthy automobile manufacturer, allows himself one per diversion-ministry to the poor in social settlements and public playgrounds. Through this association, he meets little Danny Smith (Timmy Sheehan), a six-year-old boy of remarkable precocity, who attracts his attention and admiration. Eventually, through the medium of Danny, he visits his home and meets his sister, Millie Smith (Adrienne Kroell), a girl just out of her teens who has much charm interests the wealthy man mightily. His administration has awakened into love when he learns from there that she is engaged to marry Bob Carson (Jack Nelson), a workman in his own shop, whose invention he thinks will make him wealthy.
