Talented Anna Q. Nilsson overcomes hackneyed material in this society drama. Actress Fay Leslie (Nilsson) marries Don Hampton (Freeman Wood) against his family's wishes. They snobbishly refuse to accept her presence. She uses her influence to keep a friend (Marion Harlan) from running away with her old dancing partner, Collingwood (Wilfred Lucas), and the circumstances throw her into a compromising position. Hampton's folks accuse her of being unfaithful and push for a divorce. Just as it looks like they will be successful and the divorce proceedings begin working through the courts, Fay uses her wits to embroil her husband's attorney, Paul Atkins (Earle Foxe), in the same kind of circumstances she found herself in. Atkins has no choice but to see the logic behind her argument. Because of her clever work, Fay is able to win back the love of her husband, and they are reconciled.
