Richard Strong (Frank Mayo) comes up from humble beginnings to become a mover and shaker on Wall Street. But he can't win the love of Elinor Rossiter (Lillian Tucker), who marries him only because her father has gone bankrupt and is obligated to Strong. She feels her husband is beneath her socially and no matter what he does, she prefers the attention of Charles Dalton (Ray Ripley). Strong is finally about to give up and let her go, but it turns out Dalton is already married. By now, Elinor has figured out that her husband's good character is worth far more than social standing and decides to stick with him.
