Plot

As described in a film magazine, Renee (Rambeau) finds herself unhappily married to scientist Horation Browning (Burton) with her baby being her only comfort. The monotony of her life is broken temporarily when gambler Tony Salviatti (Fernandez) attempts to commit suicide near the Browning home and is brought in. Renee assists in nursing him back to health, and Tony attempts to pay attentions to her. Horation sees this, becomes unreasonable in his jealousy and anger, and drives his wife from the house while keeping their son. Renee becomes a fortune teller in a circus that Tony starts and travels with him for twenty years, drinking heavily during this time. Her son Stephen (McKee) grows into manhood, but he does not make good at anything as he lacks assertion and receives no sympathy from his father. Fate leads him to Mme. Renee's fortune telling booth. She learns his identity and then quits the circus, quits drinking and braces up, and becomes Stephen's guiding hand. Stephen is elected to the state legislature and marries the governor's daughter.
