Chorus girl Flo Maddie (Alice Brady) turns down the attentions of the womanizing Ned Ormsby (Charles Gerard) in favor of Ross Von Beekman (Vernon Steele), the only son of an ambitious, nouveau riche couple (Bigelow Cooper and Emily Fitzroy). Flo and Ross wed and his disapproving parents are determined to cause a rift between them. Fola, another chorus girl (Edith Stockton), convinces Mrs. Van Beekman to introduce Flo into society, since her lower-class manners will be revealed. Mrs. Van Beekman takes her advice, but instead of being ostracized, Flo makes such a hit that Ross' mother tells him he has married a flirt. Next, this wicked mother-in-law brings Ormsby back into Flo's life. His pursuit of her comes to a head when he follows her up to her room and locks himself in a closet. Ross comes home and, finding the closet door locked, becomes suspicious and shoots through the door. Flo convinces him to come downstairs and Ormsby, who is wounded, escapes. When he makes it home, an enemy of his is there to kill him. Ross believes he is the one who murdered Ormsby and is put on trial. Before he can be convicted, the real murderer confesses. Ross finally realizes the depth of Flo's devotion and the couple are firmly united.
