||After graduation, Joan returns to her hometown. She is bitter because her mother is working as a servant for the Lowey family, whom Joan calls “parasites” and blames for her father’s death, years before. Joan openly criticizes John Lowey and costs him the presidency of the philanthropic society. This also provokes a romantic rupture between Joan and Bob, Lowey’s grandson. Informed by her mother that the Loweys have always treated her well, Joan publicly apologizes and is reunited with Bob.
