Brooks is Thymian Henning, daughter of pharmacist Robert Henning. On the day of Thymian's confirmation, her father kicks the maid out of the house--it turns out that Robert knocked the maid up. The maid kills herself. Thymian goes to her father's assistant, Meinert, to find out what's going on, but Meinert rapes her. Thymian, now pregnant without benefit of marriage, is thrown into a brutal reformatory for "wayward women", run by a cruel headmaster and headmistress. Her father then proceeds to marry his new maid, Meta, who is categorically against letting Thymian come home.
