Eve Quinn (Marie Prevost) is the classic, flirty, 1920s flapper. She easily outshines her quieter, more reserved half-sister, Cornelia (Helene Chadwick). So even though Cornelia loves Lewis Dike (Monte Blue), Eve is the one who wins him. Dike's love is not enough for Eve -- almost immediately after the wedding she begins carrying on with Wilfred Meadows (John Patrick). Although Cornelia finds out about their liaisons, she keeps her mouth shut out of loyalty to Eve. The secret eventually comes out and Dike tries to convince Eve to stop seeing Meadows. She refuses to listen to him so he leaves her. Cornelia, meanwhile, has decided to travel to Europe. Dike meets her at the ship and tells her that he and Eve are getting a divorce. After he declares his love for her, Cornelia takes off, knowing he will be waiting for her when she returns.
