'In 4,000 ft. of film, spectators may follow the adventures of Jack Rundle, in bush and in city. The picture affords a glimpse of the young man at his work on a station, and tells of his love for Nellie Fallon, his father's ward. He leaves the station to attend to business in the city, and is tempted into dangerous society. Later comes the realisation that he has ruined his life, and he returns in sorrow to his father's home. There is no sympathy for the leper, and he wanders into the world, an outcast. Some years later he returns to the old homestead, and finds that the faithful love of his brother has been rewarded by Nellie Fallon, and two happy children have added to the delights of their home. The end comes dramatically with the suicide of the outcast.'
