The film begins in a prospering New York in 1873 Lowly bank clerk Roger Standish is fired from his job after he is caught courting Caroline Ogden, the daughter of the bank’s president The failure of Ogden’s bank in the Panic of 1873 brings about her father’s collapse and death Undismayed, Caroline offers to marry Roger and proposes that they travel west in search of new opportunities

While traveling through Nebraska on a raft Roger is shot during the course of a robbery by a gang Taken to the nearby town of Fort Allen, he is operated on successfully by the town's doctor, Dan L Blake, who though a drunkard proves competent As Roger recovers, Caroline is inspired by the town’s generosity to them to open a bank there With the help of Blake and his wife, Standish Bank is an instant success, and Caroline soon gives birth to twins, a boy and a girl

As Fort Allen prospers, the possibility of being bypassed by the railroad threatens its growth Roger and Caroline succeed in convincing the railroad's president to include Fort Allen on the route, by the arrival of the first train is marred by the death of their son after an inebriated Doc Blake crashes the carriage in which they were riding at a crossing right in the train’s path Though they mourn their loss, Roger and Caroline’s daughter grows into a beautiful young woman, who marries Warren Lennox, one of the employees in Standish's bank

The prosperous times come to an end with the depression of the 1890s Overextended because of poor judgement by Roger’s son-in-law, the Standish National Bank is forced to close because of a run on its deposits Lennox commits suicide just as Roger’s grandchild, Roger Standish Lennox, is born The young boy grows up in a world of technological marvels, and after America’s entry into World War I becomes a decorated fighter pilot While watching him in a victory parade after the Armistice, however, Caroline dies

The decade that follows is one of great growth The Standish National Bank, having survived the hard times of the 1890s, is thriving once again under Lennox’s management When the stock market crash of 1929 brings the good times to an end, however, Lennox approaches the now-elderly Standish to sign papers dissolving his multimillion-dollar trust fund so that Lennox can put the money into the bank As Standish signs the papers, Lennox expresses his optimism that the country would recover and reach new heights, filling his grandfather with pride at both Lennox’s responsibility and his faith in America’s future
