Although Moving Picture World claimed that director Sidney A. Franklin's work on this drama earned him a long-term contract with Warner Bros., it wasn't long before he was back directing Constance Talmadge pictures, and beginning a prestigious career at MGM. The story, based on a very popular novel of the day by Charles G. Norris, involves the romance between country boy Philip Baldwin (Monte Blue) and frivolous city girl Marjorie Jones (Marie Prevost). The couple marries, but Marjorie believes that she is being neglected by her husband. She leaves Baldwin and their baby, and, egged on by her mother (Vera Lewis), gets a divorce. The child is left in the care of a trained nurse and widow, Mrs. Grotenberg (Irene Rich), who falls in love with Baldwin. His sister, Lucy (Miss DuPont), tries to find him an suitable mate and encourages Mrs. Grotenberg to leave. During this time, Marjorie has married again and divorced, and she decides she wants Baldwin back. Mrs. Grotenberg, believing that the couple will reconcile, goes away. But Baldwin no longer loves Marjorie, and prefers to wait for Mrs. Grotenberg's return.
