As described in a film magazine review, unsuccessful at first on the stage, Norma O'Neill finally wins Broadway recognition. Gossip links her name with that of Fergus Arlington, who had backed her. Darcy Roche, in love with Norma, is jealous of Fergus and reproaches Norma. Norma decides to leave the stage.
