Katherine MacDonald -- who had more beauty than talent -- starred in this romantic drama. Novelist Suzanne Danbury (MacDonald) is in love with her illustrator, Walt Gaylord (Nigel Barrie). Unfortunately, so is Agatha Bemis (Mona Kinglsey), the wife of her publisher (Charles Clary). As part of her plan to win Gaylor, Suzanne puts on a private theatrical production at the Bemis residence. Martin Tancray, an old suitor of Suzanne's (Charles Gerrard), is jealous of Gaylord, and puts real bullets in a gun meant to be used during the play. At the appropriate moment in the production, Suzanne takes the gun and shoots Gaylord, who is seriously wounded. The police are called in on the case and they question the guests. Ultimately Tancray confesses that he replaced the bullets, but the others refuse to testify against him, so he is allowed to go free. Gaylord recovers from his wounds, and he and Suzanne are united.
