This satisfying drama was one of Elaine Hammerstein's better vehicles. When Florette, an actress (Hammerstein), marries Philip Rowland (Niles Welch), his aristocratic family views her with stern disapproval. In addition to their attempts to make her life miserable, a former suitor, Paul Stanley (Ernest Hilliard), tries to destroy her marriage. He tricks Florette into a compromising position and they are caught by Philip's brother, Judge Rowland (Holmes Herbert). The judge orders Florette to divorce Philip and offers her money to do so as quietly as possible. But Florette turns the tables on him by locking him in her room. She declares that if she must divorce she should be able to name her own co-respondent and she has chosen him. As she proceeds to relate the circumstantial evidence that will link them together, the judge sees that perhaps he has jumped to conclusions. After that, he stays out of his brother's affairs.
