As described in a film magazine, Nita Gordon (Lake), a dancer in a Mexican cafe near the border, is befriended by an Italian man who expresses interest in her. She has been deserted by her husband and leaves her baby at a mission where it is adopted by a wealthy family. Five years later in New York City, after attaining success, she meets wealthy patron of the opera James Llewelyn (Bowers) and falls in love with him. He learns that Nita is the mother of the child he had adopted through a photograph that she gives him that contains some writing. Nita admits the truth and is happily reunited with her child.
