As described in a film magazine, following her marriage to Steven De Koven (McGrail), Muriel Chester (Barriscale) discovers his indifference towards her and the fact that she was bargained to him for social position by her ambitious parents. Unaware that he had refused a proffered financial settlement at the same time, she repulses his attempts to be agreeable and lives in independence of his companionship. He seeks to console himself with Tina Pierce (Barriscale), a young woman of the slums, and establishes her in luxury to find that he cannot, after all, be interested only in the wife for whom he realizes a belated affection. Despaired of untangling their problematic existence, he decides to go abroad, only to be deterred by the forgiving and understanding wife, whom Tina had made clear the situation between them.
Twenty-three sets were built for the film at a reported cost of $25,000 (not including set dressing rooms).
