In a peaceful little villa on the coast of an inland sea is located the home of a sturdy fisherman, whose hopes and joys are centered upon his daughter and only companion. All is happiness until one day tourists from the city meet the young lady and inveigle her into deserting her home for the allurements of city life. City life causes a complete transformation of the lady and she can scarcely be recognized as the same individual. At home, however, the father is bereft of reason and wanders aimlessly about, an object of pity. The novelty of city life soon wears off and. overcome with remorse, the woman seeks her old home only to find the building deserted. She learns the condition of her lather and soon finds him in the village inn. When the poor man sees his daughter his reason returns and the daughter, as also her husband, unite with him for the happiness of all concerned.
