Patience (Louise Huff) is a Quaker orphan, who is hired by Robert Penfield (John Bowers) as a social secretary to his mother (Kate Lester). Patience is in love with Robert, but he doesn't notice. Instead he marries flighty society girl Edith (Lottie Pickford -- yes, sister of Mary). But Edith is bored because her husband spends so much time working in his construction business, and she runs away with an admirer, Paul Dunston (Adolphe Menjou). The yacht on which the wayward pair has escaped is involved in a wreck and they both are drowned, so Patience (who by now has earned her name) winds up with widower Robert.
