As a young boy living on the streets, Heathcliff (Rex Downing) is found and taken in by the kind Mr. Earnshaw (Cecil Kellaway). Although Mr. Earnshaw's son Hindley (Douglas Scott) takes an immediate disliking to the orphan boy, his daughter, Cathy (Sarita Wooten) and Heathcliff quickly form an unbreakable bond.
