Steel worker Robert Holden (Conway Tearle) becomes president of the corporation, thanks to his involvement in an invention created by his friend, George Rand (Percy Marmont), and thanks to his wife, June (Claire Windsor), who proves to be smarter than the board of directors. With Holden's new position comes wealth and good times. Clarice Clement (Dorothy Revier) sets out to snare Holden by convincing him that his wife is having an affair with Rand. Holden believes Clarice and sues for divorce. The one sticky point is the custody of the couple's child (Dorothy Brock). So that she doesn't have to give the child up, June claims that Holden is not the father. Holden, who knows better, realizes that June is sacrificing her good name. He confronts Clarice and learns she was lying, so he returns to June and asks her forgiveness. This comedy-drama was based on the stage play by Eugene Walter.
