Storyline

Aspiring writer Jane Hawley, gives in to the seductions of Howard Sterling, a magazine editor, but when later rejected by him, weds Captain Wilson Stanley. After Jane gives birth to Harrison, Wilson is sent to the Philippines to guard a leper colony. In financial ruins, Sterling returns to ingratiate himself with Jane and is seen embracing her by Wilson's father, who banishes Jane from the Stanley home. Informed of his wife's presumed adultery, a dazed Wilson exposes himself to the leprosy and spends several years in quarantine while Harrison grows up in a boarding school. Years later, Jane is accused of killing Sterling but is defended in court by Harrison, who is still unaware of her real identity. The condemned Jane is about to be sentenced when Wilson, the actual killer, confesses to his crime and reveals Harrison to be Jane and Sterling's son. Written by Pamela Short
