Storyline

The country boy, despite the advice of a fellow-townsman, goes to the city, where, after an encounter with a motion picture holdup man, is engaged as property boy in a studio. His fellow-townsman comes to the city when he learns that his wife, from whom he has become estranged, is dying. After his wife's death the countryman falls in with his wife's worthless brother and attempts to rob the house where the country boy is living. The landlord's daughter, who has been a kind friend to the country boy, calls for help when she sees the two men trying to make off with money which her father has entrusted to her. The country boy saves the girl from the tramps, and secures the release of his fellow-townsman, who promises to lead a better life in future. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
