Although an endless round of coincidences strip this drama of any credibility, Corinne Griffith, as always, looks pretty and stylish. Jared Wolcott (William Park, Jr.) runs a country store and takes care of his adolescent sister, Marion (Griffith). Nancy Bartley (Alice Concord), a summer visitor, arrives in the village along with her friend, Grace Elmore (Catherine Calvert). Grace carelessly flirts with Wolcott, letting him fall in love with her and never revealing that she is married. When the truth comes out -- that she already has a husband -- Wolcott is so disgraced that he commits suicide. Marion swears to get revenge, and she has her opportunity years later when she has moved to the big city and becomes an illustrator. She is hired to illustrate the latest book of author George Elmore (Harry C. Browne), and when she spends the weekend at his country home, she discovers that Grace is his wife. Marion convinces Grace that Elmore has fallen in love with her just when John Corliss (Joe King) appears. It turns out that Corliss -- who is Marion's sweetheart -- is Grace's brother. Marion finally admits to her identity and leaves. Corliss follows after her, and they reunite.
