As their 25th anniversary approaches, Stuart Borden (Huntley Gordon) and his wife (Irene Rich) are not exactly happily married. In addition to the boredom they feel, there is also the issue of their grown son, Stuart Jr. (John Harron). Young Stuart is in love with Betty Allen (Constance Bennett), a gold digger who is only interested in him as long as he spends lavish amounts of money on her. His father becomes so outraged at the amounts of money he is going through that he cuts him off. As a result, Betty dumps Stuart and a little while later, she meets Borden and entices him. Soon they are having an affair, which is discovered by Mrs. Borden. The Borden's anniversary is on the same day as Betty's birthday and she's mad that Borden won't just drop everything to be with her. Mrs. Borden finally admits that she knows about the affair, and her husband decides to go to Europe. He goes to Betty to tell her good-bye, but his son is already on his way there with a gun to shoot whoever his rival is. Mrs. Borden follows and stops her son from shooting his father. Borden begs his wife's forgiveness and the couple reconcile. It's surprising to note that this domestic drama was adapted from a novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe.
