Corinne Griffith stars in this jazz-age drama, which contains a seemingly endless round of wild parties and bootleg gin. Marian Hale (Griffith) is a refined young lady who has a good friend in Tom Carol (Harrison Ford). She meets Arthur Carrolton (Kenneth Harlan), who has a passion for parties and booze. Even though Marian disapproves of his lifestyle, she comes to love him anyway, and when he promises to reform, they marry. Before long, however, his old pals start coming around and he convinces Marian to have a drink with him. She winds up having several, and when her father (Charles Lane) finds her drunk, the shock kills him. Marian and Carrolton travel to Paris, where they become part of the fast set, and he becomes involved with Toinette, a dancer (Nita Naldi). It all comes to a head when Marian is ill and Carrolton brings Toinette to their apartment. Marian drives the illicit pair from her home and accidentally swallows poison. Carol rescues her and she recovers. When Carrolton and Toinette are conveniently killed in a auto wreck, Marian is able to settle down with Carol.
