Having contributed two sons to the war cause already, their mother is hesitant to allow her third son to enlist. However, she experiences a change of heart after working among some survivors of U-boat attacks.


Released in 1918, this feature reflects the virulent anti-German feeling prevalent in the United States at that stage of the war. One of the opening scenes shows a family burning German books and sheet music on learning that war has been declared.
