In this dramatic morality tale, a very youthful Mary Boland plays Bertha Miller, a young lady of the middle class who marries John, a modest cobbler (David Wall). Her three girlfriends, however, have gone off to lives of luxury -- Lucille (Marion Singer) has become a famed opera diva, Ruth Taylor (Enid Francis) is the mistress of a millionaire, and Evelyn Morgan (Carlotta de Felice) marries a crook. When Bertha sees the nice clothes and jewelry worn by her pals, she begins to question the quality of her own life. But reality hits home when she sees each of them come to a bad end, and she acknowledges that she made the best choice after all. Adolphe Menjou, billed here as Adolphe Majou, also had a small role.
