Frederick Osborne (Harry T. Morey) is a self-made man whose wife, Frances (Kathlyn Williams), is a naive but eager social butterfly. She heads off for New York and Atlantic City and befriends a couple, Cordelia and Jack Wilson (Grace Valentine) and Roland Bottomley). What she doesn't realize is that they're crooks who prey on the nouveau riche, and they've all but blackmailed Arthur Lynn (Matt Moore), who is engaged to Frances's daughter, Lucy (Faire Binney). When Osborne discovers that his wife is getting into trouble, he orders to return home to Toledo, but she insists on inviting her supposed friends along. A family rift explodes when Osborne orders the Wilsons out of his home. But Cordelia has a change of heart and decides not to ruin the family members lives. As she leaves, she gives Osborne a stern lecture about the necessity of being a more understanding husband. He takes her words to heart and his family benefits from his improved attitude. This drama was based on the play by Anna Steese Richardson and Edmund Breese.
