This domestic drama was supposed to be an indictment of the supposedly lax divorce laws then current. Because Redfield (Maurice Costello) has fallen on hard times financially, his wife, Eugenie (Marie Shotwell), welcomes the arrival of Bronson Gibbs (Montagu Love), who offers to save the family if he can marry their daughter, Cynthia (Helene Chadwick). Cynthia elopes with Ernest Herrick (Lawford Davidson), a young man who has not won Eugenie's approval. She throws the couple out of the house, and Gibbs plots with Greenwich Village inhabitant Veerah Vale (Mary Thurman) to compromise Herrick. The plot seems like it's working -- after Gibbs sends Cynthia some of Herrick's letters to Veerah, she files for divorce. They reconcile when their child is seriously injured.
