Plot summary

Alice Kendall is the darling of her social set, the sons and daughters of millionaires. Unbeknownst to Alice, her mother has impoverished herself to provide Alice the luxuries she expects. When Alice becomes engaged to businessman Fred Garlan, her mother spends the last of her money on Alice's trousseau.

Feeling stifled in her marriage because of Fred's long hours, Alice spends more than Fred can bring in, causing strain in the marriage. When she asks for a sable coat like her friend owns, Fred makes it clear they cannot afford it.

When a well-known playboy named Morrell helps her get one through a phony stock deal, Alice and Fred's marriage is brought to the breaking point.
