As described in a film magazine review,[3] an intoxicated young man meets a similarly conditioned old man while wandering in a park and decides to adopt him as his father. The young man’s fiancé resents this act and the old man, desirous of seeing the young people happy, goes his way. Later, the men meet again, and this time stay together and help each other find happiness.
