SOWING THE WIND
John M. Stahl

Rosamond abandons her mother, Baby Brabant, on discovering that she works in a casino, and becomes a successfula actress, while her mother, devastated by her daugther's desertion, turns into an opium addict. Rosamond falls in love with Ned, son of Brabazon, the wealthy man who was married to baby Brabant, making them afraid of discovering that ther are brother and sister and therefore unable to continue seeing each other. 

BIOGRAPHY

Also common is the melodramatic treatment of identity, the kinship, the existence of which was unknown and which is suddenly discovered. Many synopses lead to a "but then, so you are..." (a sentence which can be finished, depending on the case, with "my mother", "my brother", "my daugther", etc.). (...) In Sowing the Wind, the heroine finds out that she's the daugther of her boyfriend's father; once again, the spectre of incest disappears on discovering that he is, in fact, only an adopted son. 

Bertrand Tavernier, Jean-Pierre Coursodon
