Description by OLDIES.com:
A crippled orphan, Fellows, turns to fatherly Carrillo for moral and material sustenance. Carrillo sells his store to pay for an operation for the paralyzed Fellows, becomes impoverished, and eventually loses her to the state. Carrillo strives to regain her, accomplishes the feat, but dies of an illness contracted while fighting for her release.
This tragedy has pathos to spare as it presents the story of a crippled orphan who finds support in a kindly storekeeper who loves her. To help her the older man must constantly deal with the well-intentioned welfare representative who constantly interfere. To pay for an operation for the stricken girl, the man sells his store. He loses everything when the state takes her back. The man successfully rallies to get her back only to die of a stress-related disease he caught while fighting for her.
