This minor dramatic programmer was an independent production. In spite of the fact that she's loved by Howard (William P. Carleton), a fine upstanding fellow, Florence (Fritzi Brunette) decides to marry the scheming George Otis (Sam De Grasse). Otis uses her to help him put over some questionable business deals. But when he asks her to get a 25,000-dollar loan from her former sweetheart, she can't go through with it. Instead, she gets the money from her mother. Because she does not tell him where the money came from, Otis suspects that she was intimate with Howard. When he needs even more money, he demands that she approach him again, but she refuses. Otis accuses Florence of being unfaithful, and finally she wakes up and realizes the kind of man she has married. She walks out on him, and they begin divorce proceedings. It is assumed that when she is free, Florence will marry Howard.
