Plot Outline:

When Polly Parish goes looking for a new job she sees an woman leave a baby on the steps of a foundling home. Worried that the baby may roll off she picks it up, only to have the home think she is the mother. Despite her emphatic denial, the home contacts Merlin Jr. of Merlin and Son department store, where Polly was seasonally employed. Merlin rehires her so she can be reunited with her baby, but Polly refuses to be assigned a family and tries to return the baby to Merlin, causing another employee the mistaken idea that Merlin is the father. He then uses this information to blackmail his way to a promotion. Merlin Sr. then decides to take the baby away from Polly, but she has become quite attached. More mix-ups lead to a happy ending. -- Gingerfilms
