Margaret Hill (Barbara Castleton) is a poor factory girl who plans to commit suicide when she loses her job. But she is saved by Teddy Shale (Carrie Clark Ward), who finds her some work as a performer in a Barbary Coast dive. Albert Levering (Sydney Ainsworth) sees her act and believes that she has potential. For two years, he pays for music lessons, but then he is arrested for embezzlement. Margaret is nevertheless grateful to him and offers to marry him when he gets out. But then she meets John Ordham (John Bowers), an English aristocrat, and after she has become a success as an opera singer in Great Britain, they fall in love. Before they can marry, however, Levering escapes from jail and tracks Margaret down. She is willing to sacrifice herself and carry out her promise to him, but he is killed while being chased down by detectives. This picture was based on the novel, The Tower of Ivory, by Gertrude Atherton, and was yet another of Goldwyn's "Eminent Author" series.
