Eileen O'Hara lives with her father as members of a religious cult known as The Shining Band in a compound in the Adirondack Mountains. Her mother's infidelity years ago has left her father embittered. Peyster Sproul, as president of the Sagamore Club, tries to buy the O'Hara's land to become a Summer resort. Sproul is the man with whom Eileen's mother had the affair. Mr. O'Hara recognizes Sproul, they quarrel, and as a result Mr. O'Hara dies. Sproul then bribes Amasu Munn, the dishonest cult leader, to obtain an illegitimate claim on the property. Sproul tries to steal the deed from Eileen but is thwarted by young Dr. Lansing who has become enamored with Eileen. She then marries Dr. Lansing.
