Vacationing in the Canadian Northwest, a playwright and a songwriter both fall in love with Marie Cleste and take her back with them to New York when her father and her sweetheart apparently die in a forest fire. (The father did perish; the sweetheart escaped, crippled, with his blinded Indian guide into the forest to hide his infirmities.) Marie becomes a Broadway star, only to find it necessary to leave New York hurriedly under suspicion of the murder of one of her "angels." (The real murderer escapes, but is later captured in the Northwest.) Returning to her hometown, Marie finds considerable local opposition to her presence; but she finally finds happiness in the arms of her sweetheart, who has returned also, inherited a fortune, and recovered the use of his legs.
