Storyline

Jack Hammond on his return from college decides to spend his life assisting his mother in philanthropic schemes. His mother tells Jack the story of her life. Her father, an Englishman of wealth, found it necessary because of his business to live in Turkey, where she, his only child, spent the greater part of her time. At the outbreak of the Crimean War, the village near their home is captured by the Russians and burned. A group of officers enter their home and imbibe freely of wine. The girl is assaulted by one of them whose name she does not know. But as she tells her son the story she shows him an old-fashioned seal ring she found the next day. Jack vows to kill the man who ruined his mother's life should they ever meet. Later Jack begs his mother to go to America. They do. Alfred Gerard, a peace advocate of international reputation, lives in New York with his only child, Elsie. Gerard and Mrs. Hammond meet, as do Jack and Elsie. Jack falls in love with Elsie and admires her father ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
