This picture was based on the stage play by Hubert Henry Davies and starred Elsie Ferguson, who reprised her role for the screen. When her husband deserts her, Miriam Moore (Ferguson) gets work as a model, but then she loses her job and is evicted from her apartment when she can't pay the rent. While she is wandering through the streets, a young tough accosts Miriam, but Tony Hewlett (William David) rescues her. His friend Geoffrey Sherwood (David Powell) has him invite Miriam up to his Park Avenue home. Sherwood is drunk and pining away for his sweetheart, Valentine (Mary MacLaren), who has married another man for his wealth. When Miriam tells Sherwood her troubles, his don't seem as bad. He helps her out and eventually they form a business partnership. Miriam comes to love Sherwood but he still misses Valentine, who finally decides she's had enough of her husband, John Moreland (Charles Wellesley), and comes back.
