Virginia Carter (Alma Rubens) has two suitors -- the carefree Robert Whitney (Frank Mayo) and the more restrained, but far wealthier Jordan Southwick (H.B. Warner). Because her family is having financial difficulties, Mrs. Carter (Marie Shaffer) encourages her daughter to choose Southwick. After the wedding, Virginia's no-good brother, Boyd (Walter McGrail), tries to sell Southwick Virginia's old love letters to Whitney, but Southwick destroys them unread. He does, however, decide to put Virginia's love to the test -- the couple go on a yacht cruise, and Southwick invites Whitney along. Disaster strikes when a huge liner collides with the yacht. Whitney and Virginia are rescued by a rum runner, and Southwick is presumed dead. Although Virginia remains true to her husband's memory, she finally decides to marry Whitney. Southwick has been picked up by a sea captain and he returns home. He discovers Virginia and Whitney together, but seeing their happiness, he decides to leave well enough alone and goes back to the sea with the captain.
