"Ronald Gray's life became less and less pleasing to his widowed mother as he steadily degraded himself. Through bitter experiences Mrs. Grayson seeks the salvation of her son; but he leaves her home and its healthful influence and becomes a wreck of humanity.
By the courageous intervention of his friend Gerald, the patiently-loving Barbara and the prayers of his mother, life takes on a new turn for him. The climax is in his return home - a prodigal's homecoming."
