When a new social worker begins to work at the reformatory, the boy thinks he has found the mother he was looking for. He runs away from the reformatory looking for the social worker’s home. Locating her home he tries to convince her that she is his mother. The arrival of the boy creates a certain warm atmosphere in a home where there is no male member, and an emotional relationship develops between the boy and the social worker’s little daughter.
