Dorothy Robey (Lucy Doraine) is engaged to a nice young man (William Farleigh), but falls prey to the questionable charms of a fortune-hunting count Count Ludwig Salm von Hoogerstraeten (in an obvious bit of typecasting). Dorothy leaves her sweetheart and marries the Count, who murders her father and gets away with it. Eventually, Dorothy divorces the Count and marries her original fiancé. The Count returns, with blackmail in his heart. When he threatens to kidnap her child, she murders him, but is acquitted by a sympathetic jury.
