Tom Moore has the starring role in this adaptation of Charles E. Klein's successful stage drama. Eric Temple (Moore) is a composer whose rival, both in romance and work, is Sir Geoffrey Pomfret (Sydney Ainsworth), a nobleman with few scruples. The woman they both love is Margaret (Helene Chadwick), the daughter of Lord Neville (Alec B. Francis). To get rid of his competition, Pomfret tells Lord Neville that his wife, Lady Neville (Rosemary Theby), is in love with Eric. Then, when Eric is attacked by thugs and lays unconscious in a hospital, he steals his opera too. Eric doesn't realize what has happened until the opera's opening night. But with Margaret's help, Eric is able to assert his rights to both the opera and the girl.
