As described in a film magazine,[4] Jenny Martin (McAvoy), daughter of an invalid mother (Midgley), makes many friends as a waitress of a doughnut shop on New York City's Lower East Side. Her brother Dan (Hamrick) is arrest for a theft committed to aid his sister and is sent to a reformatory. Jenny keeps the facts from her mother, who has gone blind. Jenny builds up an independent business for her brother to take over when he returns, and postpones until then her marriage to Italian vendor Tomasso Barilio (McKee). Her brother finally returns and the wedding is in prospect as the film ends.
