As described in a film magazine review, Lance Bellew likes his mistress better than his wife Betty. This is resented by Jerry Woodruff, a friend of the family. Lance becomes suspicious of the relations between Jerry and his wife, and in a fight he shoots Jerry. A clever lawyer, by working on her love for her little son, gets Betty to testify for her husband. Lance is acquitted on the basis that the killing was justified. To humiliate her, Lance divorces his wife and obtains custody of the child. Mrs. Bellew finds how hard it is to get along with a ruined reputation. With a new friend who is a constant help to her, she overcomes her difficulties and her child is restored to her.
