Marion Gregory (Alma Rubens) is not happy with her life as the wife of a struggling inventor (Jack Conway). When Dr. Calvert (J. Barney Sherry), the minister who married them, introduces Marion to the rich Wingates, her dissatisfaction grows. What she doesn't realize is that Mrs. Wingate (Katherine Adams) is having an affair, as is Mr. Wingate (Harvey Charles). Marion is invited to spend some time at the Wingates' summer home. She arrives, alone, which is just what Mrs. Wingate wants -- she encourages Mr. Wingate's interest in the young woman, so she can divorce him. This visit, however, has been a revelation to Marion. She now sees the dark side of society life and realizes how fortunate she really was. Mrs. Wingate's attempts to compromise her husband are unsuccessful, thanks to the intervention of Dr. Calvert, and Marion gladly returns to her husband. This picture was based on a story by Cosmo Hamilton, who was famous for exposing the phony side of the society set.
