Storyline

Pietro, a handsome young Italian, in love with Maria, the village magnate's daughter, refused by the father after swearing eternal love to her, with her rosary about his neck, goes to America to win fortune that shall win her. Eventually he makes a great success as a grape grower in California, and in rescuing a lovely young lady from a dreadful death, falls in love with her, discards Maria's rosary and appears to continue well favored by fortune. The faithful and overfond Maria takes her scanty savings and, guided by Pietro's last letter to her, goes to America, and readies her destination in California on the evening of Pietro's wedding fiesta. At first she decides to kill him, but resolves to humiliate him by tossing on the table in front of him the token he gave her in the old days in Italy. Death seems the only relief for her despair, and it touches her with a merciful finger. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
