Anita Stewart's lovely presence couldn't hide the fact that this drama featured one of the most tired plotlines of the silent era. Clover Dean (Stewart) is orphaned and living with her wealthy uncle, John Childe (Charles Stevenson), and his wife (Julia Swayne Gordon). Childe wants to marry his niece off to Bucky Raine (William Dunn), the son of the influential Peter Raine, while Mrs. Childe wants her to wed Boris (Brinsley Shaw), a duke. Clover, however, has ideas of her own -- she loves Billy Dunn, a young doctor (Rudolph Cameron) who is just getting his start. Meanwhile, the duke's jealous lover, Rita (Eulalie Jensen), is furious that Boris is arranging to marry Clover, and she murders him with a gun belonging to Bucky Raine. Bucky, Clover, and Dunn are all suspected of killing the duke, but when Rita confesses they are all cleared. Clover defies her ambitious relatives by heading for the nearest altar with Dunn.
