Annesley Grayle (Katherine MacDonald) answers an ad for a traveling companion to an elderly matron to escape the boredom of living with her aunt. When she goes to meet the lady at the Savoy Hotel, an obviously panicky Nelson Smith (Edmund Lowe) asks her to pose as his wife to escape some impending trouble. The two proceed to the home of Ruthven Smith (Thomas Jefferson), a family friend of Annesley, but Ruthven mistakes Nelson for a thief and he shoots Nelson. Annesley's aunt banishes her from the house over her niece's affair with Nelson, but despite her aunts disapproval, the two are soon married. Later, the bride hears Nelson tell an underworld boss he will give up crime after one last heist. Annesley pleads with Nelson not to engage in any more criminal activity.
