The story begins in 1911 and extends into the Prohibition era. Jimmie got into the habit of drinking bootleg liquor partly due to the Prohibition law. When he falls in love with and proposes to Florrie, he makes a vow "not to take another drink". The young couple gets married, has a daughter and enjoys a happy family life; that is, until Jimmie starts drinking again. As Jimmie descends into alcoholism, his family falls into disarray.
