Plot Synopsis:

Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery teamed up for the first time in this dramedy about a tough waterfront hotel owner and the fisherman she loves.
Min has been raising a little girl named Nancy as her own ever since the child's real mother, Bella, abandoned her as a baby. But now, officials of the fishing village they live in want to take Nancy away from her because they don't approve of the environment Min's providing for the girl.
Heartbroken, but left with no choice, Min reluctantly allows Nancy to live with the local school principal and his family. And while Min carries on her life with Bill in the village, Nancy grows up and goes away to boarding school. There, she falls in love with a rich boy and the two plan to marry.
But Nancy's real mother, the devious Bella, reenters her daughter's life once again and attempts to destroy the young couple's happiness. However, Min won't sit idly by and watch her beloved Nancy's life be ruined...
