Connie (Louise Glaum) is married to attorney Robert MacNair (Mahlon Hamilton). When he leaves town on a business trip, her friend from the old days, Molly May (May Hopkins), invites her to a party. Connie, who misses her old life, decides to go under an assumed name. Teddy Garrick, the host (Joseph Kilgour), makes a play for her and she burns her shoulder trying to get away from him. Dillon, a burglar who is hiding in the house (George Cooper), surreptitiously presses a gun into Connie's hand from behind a curtain. As Garrick comes toward her he is shot dead. Dillon is caught and charged with the crime. His friend, London Hattie (Ruth Stonehouse), asks MacNair to defend him. Connie is haunted by the events at the party, and she is convinced she killed Garrick. Just as she confesses her guilt to the judge, MacNair shows up with evidence proving that the real killer is Trixie, Garrick's jealous mistress (Claire Du Brey). The gun that Connie was holding had never fired.
