Starting her career as a server at Swain's Music Hall, Helen soon rises up the ranks to become an actress on the London stage. But her life changes forever the moment she meets the charming and easy-going Jack Waters...

Although the pair soon fall in love, Helen's dreams of wealth and status begin to put an immense strain on their relationship and she is ultimately forced to choose between her head and her heart.

When Helen decides to marry another man, the wealthy Rudolph Swithin, it appears that her life with Jack is over for good.
