DK/FeatureDrama, MelodramaSilent films

Margrethe is in love with Worm, who only sees her as a fleeting youthful infatuation. When he suddenly leaves, he abandons both Margrethe and their unborn son. Fate leads them down vastly different paths, and their son Hans grows up and is forced to become a criminal. One day, Worm decides to seek out the woman and child he’d abandoned, and the first meeting between father and son turns out to be quite different from what he’d imagined.
