Description by OLDIES.com:
Despite losing all that they had at the roulette table, Phillip Eden (Richard Dix) and his young daughter Alice live a life full of joy and wonder, free from the oppressive Florence -- Phillip's estranged wife and Alice's mother. That life has now been threatened by Bernice, a jilted lover of Phillips, who informs him that she has reported his whereabouts to Florence. Looking to keep Alice out of his wife's domineering clutches, Phillip restrains Bernice in his apartment and flees to Italy. There, he is arrested for Bernice's murder and Alice is returned to her mother (and Florence's new husband) in England. Eleven years pass, and during that time spent in her mother's "care," Alice's spirit has been crushed, causing her invalidism. Learning of his daughter's condition, Phillip escapes from prison and embarks on a mission to save his now-grown daughter's soul.
