When the baby dies she wanders until she gets a job with Squire Bartlett. David falls for her, but she rejects him due to her past and then Lennox shows up lusting for Kate.

WAY DOWN EAST was an old-fashioned melodrama even in 1920 when D.W.
Griffith decided to film it. It's the kind of story that leaves itself
open for spoofing, but Griffith approaches the story of a "mock
marriage" and its aftermath with earnestness and a great eye for
Aiding Griffith in bringing this story to life are three great stars:
Lillian Gish as Anna, Richard Barthelmess as David, and Lowell Sherman
as caddish Lennox. The supporting cast includes New England "types"
that almost parody Dickens. Kate Bruce is the staunch mother, Creighton
Hale the ditzy professor, Vivia Ogden the town gossip, Burr McIntosh
the intolerant squire, Emily Fitzroy runs the hotel, etc.
The story of love, betrayal, tolerance, and redemption is slow moving
and has (as usual in a Griffith film) subplots, but like the very
river, all the actions and events slowly come together for the finale
that left 1920 audiences in a frenzy. Indeed the ending is among the
most famous in all silent films.
Gish is quite beautiful here. In her opening scene she is in her parlor
with her mother making a broom, holding up the straw so that we see
only her white cap and large expressive eyes. She's stunning. As Anna
she goes through the gamut of shy maiden, young lover, wronged woman,
timid servant, and town jezebel. Barthelmess is solid as the young and
innocent David who falls in love with the servant girl.
Their final scenes in the blizzard (filmed on Long Island in a real
storm) on the icy river (filmed in White River Junction, VT) are
totally amazing. And they did not use stunt doubles. As Gish lies
exhausted on the piece of ice she may or may not know that it's heading
for the falls. There are scenes were her hand and hair trail in the icy
river. Just amazing. Barthelmess uses the breaking ice as a trail so
that he can reach Gish before it's too late. There are several shots
where he falls off the ice or the ice breaks under him and he plunges
into that wintry river. The entire sequence is as thrilling today as it
was in 1920.
Gish once wrote that her long hair froze solid from being in the river
water and snapped off with the ice.
WAY DOWN EAST is a great film.
