Plot

Terence, a violin player living in the Irish country side with his mother, is overheard by a group of passing Americans, including the banker John Foster who recognizes him as a musical genius and asks him to come to New York. After a few months, Terence's mother gives him her life savings to book passage for him to travel to America. He becomes a success, but rarely thinks of his mother. Pining for her son, his mother receives help from a parish priest and is able to follow him to New York. After seeing him in concert at the opera house, a stagehand guides her to Terence's house, where a butler refuses to let them in. When Terence learns of his mother, he rushes from his dinner with his friends and tearfully embraces her. He presents her to his friends, where they drink a toast to her.
