This drama was one of Miriam Cooper's last films, and she's far too good for the mediocre story. Her co-star here is the stolid Norman Kerry. John Brand (Kerry) is a young man from the country who decides to head for New York to try his luck on Wall Street. He becomes a huge success and is even able to get the man he ruined, Roy Pelham (William Bailey), to help him make his way up in society. Pelham's wife, Justine (Martha Mansfield), is determined to get revenge and she seduces him. Brand's wife, Marion (Cooper), finds the adulterous pair together and realizes that her marriage is in danger. To save her home, she decides to ruin her own husband's business by betraying his plans to his rivals. Brand finally wakes up to his errors and he returns to the country with Marion by his side.
