Cast & Crew
Alice Guy Blaché
Mrs. Manning is engrossed in her medical career while her husband is equally absorbed in his law practice. The couple are so preoccupied with the pursuit of their careers that they neglect their little daughter Louise, leaving her in the care of the servants. Louise, feeling unwanted and unhappy, decides to run away with a little newsboy, and her disappearance leads to the estrangement of her parents. The Mannings decide to separate, and soon after, Mrs. Manning suffers a nervous breakdown. Mr. Manning undertakes a long standing investigation of child labor practices, and while at the factory one day, he meets Louise who has come in search of work. Elated, Mr. Manning brings the child to his wife who, upon seeing her daughter alive, undergoes a miraculous recovery. The couple then decide to reconcile with the understanding that their child is more important than their careers.
