Mary was just a child when she was coerced into prostitution by her mother. After the death of her mother, she is mistakenly incarcerated in an institution for mentally retarded people. Fortunately she finds kindness in her heart when she is set to work caring for disabled babies. Because of her natural way with children, she is released to look after for a mentally impeded young girl from a wealthy family. The girl is murdered and Mary feels responsible. Her mind and emotions are restored by Charlie who, like her, wants to live life in a state of kindheartedness. obooko.
