Ann (Love) and Jimmy (Hughes) are orphans.[4]


In preparation for her role, Love lived at an orphanage for two weeks.[5]



The film received positive reviews. According to The Evening Mail, the film "is a fine, clean, beautiful picture… told with such depth of understanding and with entire lack of artificiality that it strikes its note of appeal as few films that have… It is blessed with a cast that could not be improved upon." The Daily News said, "Few who see this little screen drama will not soon forget its sweetness and charm."[4]
