Comment
A wealthy family live on the top of the hill, whilst a group of squatters live at the bottom of the hill and just about survive by fishing. One of them (Mary Pickford) is secretly in love with one of the wealthy family (Lloyd Hughes) and her father is framed by another man for killing the brother of the man she loves. This is one of Mary Pickford's best films as she plays a feisty young woman dealing with a range of emotional and physical challenges and not afraid to fight for what she wants. There are numerous threads to the plot, even if some are illogical, that keep the attention as well as the performance from Mary Pickford.
