Beth Curtis promised her brother and his wife that if anything should happen to them, she would raise their son as if he were her own. So when a double tragedy leads to their deaths at the height of the Great Depression, a brokenhearted Beth steps forward to keep her vow.
However, Joey is also the grandson of Nat Wilkerson, a dangerous and wealthy tycoon, who will stop at nothing to gain sole custody of the child, sending his son Guy to find the child. Beth and her beloved nephew Joey escape by train into the night, but to her dismay, Guy follows-though not for the reasons she suspects.
