Cast & Crew
Eileen, who deserted New York politician Big Bill Devens 20 years earlier, returns and begs him to take her back, but he refuses because of the effect on Moira, their daughter. Devens' partner, Kelling, arrives after her departure to confess that he has implicated Devens in a political graft, and in a sudden rage Kelling shoots Devens to avoid exposure. All evidence points to Eileen's guilt, and Hugh Dillon, Moira's fiancée, learning that Eileen is her mother, resigns as district attorney to defend her. Dillon discovers a dictaphone record on which Devens has recorded his dying words, branding Kelling as his killer. Mrs. Clayton is acquitted, mother and daughter are reunited, and Moira and Dillon are married.
