A drama adapted from a portion of "David Copperfield," by Charles Dickens. The love story of David and Agnes Wickfield, the daughter of the old lawyer over whom Uriah Heep holds an influence, is the theme involved in this picture. The delightful character of Trotwood is a prominent one, and also our old friend Wilkins Micawber. Wickfield and Heep, the two lawyers, are shown after Uriah becomes a partner of Mr. Wickfield. David is brought by Miss Trotwood, his aunt, and introduced to Mr. Wickfield, her attorney, who agrees to accept David as a student in his office.

As the story progresses we see that Uriah Heep, the oily hypocrite of Dickens' story, is very much in love ...
