||Barbara and Norman, who works in her father’s factory, fall in love. He proposes marriage but says he’s opening his own design studio and they must live on his salary alone. Barbara asks her father to give Norman a promotion, but Norman won’t accept it. Norman’s firm begins to fail and Barbara prevents the local banker from extending him a loan. Norman goes back to work in the factory, but just before he marries Barbara, Norman learns what she did. He breaks up with her. Barbara becomes a nurse to become “useful” and hopes Norman will return some day.
