New York City
Young Vivie Warren, emancipated, intelligent, and self-sufficient, is astounded to learn her mother rose from poverty to riches through prostitution, and also that she is now part owner and operator of a chain of brothels. Mrs. Warren ably justifies her past, attacking a hypocritical society that rewards vice and oppresses virtue. Vivie, respecting her mother’s courage, accepts her past but not her present.
