The young Nell Bradley is regarded with contempt by the inhabitants of the town where she lives because her father is the owner of the local bar, seen as a place of perdition for alcoholics. Charles Alden, the pastor, is attracted to the girl but, when a minor gets sick because a traveling salesman makes her drunk, Alden holds Nell responsible for the fact, even though she has managed to save her with his intervention. Later, Alden discovers the truth. He then offers to send the young woman to school and promises to wait for her until she completes her studies.
