When she starred in this drama, Helene Chadwick was being referred to as "the most photographed girl in America." Phoebe Mabee (Chadwick) has two suitors: Harley Jones (Richard Dix) and the wealthy Anson Newton (Maurice B. Flynn). Jones wins her and the newly married couple move to the big city and start a family. They are happy for the most part -- only the occasional appearance of Newton and his socially prominent aunt, Mrs. Noxon (Kate Lester), annoys Jones. But after a number of years and several children, Phoebe begins longing for a social life. She accepts a dinner invitation from Mrs. Noxon, even though her daughter is sick. Jones believes she is going just to see Newton, which Phoebe vehemently denies. She comes to her senses and rushes home from the dinner party to the little girl, who is calling for her. The lure of hearth overcomes Phoebe's desire for social prominence, and all is well with the Joneses.
