Dreaming of a better life, Margot, the motherless daughter of a New England fisherman, reads society magazines and falls in love with a photograph of Jack Rutledge, a wealthy heir residing on the other side of the cove.

Enamored of the guileless Margot, Jack proposes marriage, but Mrs. Rutledge intervenes, forcing her son to court a woman of equal social standing. Dejected, Margot begs to go home, but her father insists that because her mother was of high birth, she is worthy of Jack's attentions.
