John Hodder is the new rector at St. John's. It doesn't take Hodder long to discover the true nature of his supposedly pious congregation. Primary among them is Eldon Parr, a bank president whose daughter, Alison, leaves to perform settlement work. Eldon's son, Preston, has deserted the family because of his father's treatment of the poor girl he loved, and is now living a life of degradation. Hodder is disgusted by the cruelty of Parr and others who attend St. John's, and he exposes them all from the pulpit. He goes about correcting all the wrongs and wins Alison's heart. One of Parr's disgruntled former workers shoots him and then himself. Parr survives just long enough to make amends for all he has done."
