As described in a film magazine review, a Mother tries to direct the affections of her daughter as she sees fit. When her daughter rebels, she realizes how such domination spoiled her own life and she allows her daughter to marry the man of her choice, a young officer. The Mother's similar history from years past is presented in flashbacks.
