Mike, a gang leader, never before knew what power there was in a good woman's persuasion, and when he met the little girl of the tenement he involuntarily exclaimed, "There's a real girl." At a dance given in the neighborhood, he hunts for her and despite the efforts of her friends to oppose it, she promises to be his girl. The next day, while in the corner saloon, he sees a bill collector with quite an amount of money. He attempts to get this money and is about to succeed when he discovers that the collector is the father of the girl. He now fully realizes how despicable he is, and handing back the money, he goes with a promise to prove himself worthy of her.

One version of this is shown the way the negative was developed (no editing betwwen the scenes). Another version has the editing restored. However, since the edited version was lost, the editing was done according to numbers that Griffith placed on the side of the film negative. These numbers are visible in the unedited version of the film. (both are of the same length and contain the same material, just in different order) Since the inner titles were also lost, the latest version of the film has beginnig titles added to give history to the film and introduce the editing problems/issues.
