As described in a film magazine,[4] Rose O'Grady (Walton), an Irish waif, is adopted by kindhearted Hebrew pawnbroker Isaac Rosenstein (Williams), and, when Mama Rosenstein dies, Rose assumes the duties of housekeeper. Son Nat Rosenstein, employed in a silk factory, is robbed of some waybills and is sentenced to jail. He is released from jail through the political influence of Tim McCarthy (Perry), who wants to marry Rose. Nat aids the police in catching other crooks, and Rose confesses her love for Terry O'Brien (Dougherty), who takes Rose away from the secondhand store and secondhand family.
