When Blanche Davis (Betty Compson, in her first role as a star) comes between her father (Ralph Lewis) and his mistress, she is forced to leave home. So she goes to San Francisco and becomes a stenographer at a law firm, where she gets involved with the junior partner, James Randolph (Emory Johnson). He goes East on business where he meets and falls in love with Blanche's younger sister (Clara Horton). Her father, not realizing that Blanche is the one standing in the way of the romance, gives Randolph a check for ten thousand dollars to give to his old sweetheart if she will go away. Blanche refuses the check, but when the father finds out that she is Randolph's "other woman," she withdraws so her younger sister can marry him. Blanche herself finds happiness instead with the firm's senior partner, Martin Blair (Roy Stewart).
