Barbara La Marr plays the title role, a woman with a dual nature. On one hand, Sandra is a home-loving wife, on the other, she craves adventure and excitement. Her husband David, an architect (Bert Lytell), does not understand her needs, and when he faces financial ruin, Sandra helps out by working out a deal with the womanizing Stephen Winslow (Leon Gordon). This is only the start of Sandra's scandalous lifestyle, which takes her to Europe. She falls for a Frenchman, who is only using her as bait for his crooked gambling schemes. Then she becomes involved with a bank president who, it turns out, already has a wife. Sandra realizes that her lifestyle will never make her happy, so she returns home but believes that David has become involved with her friend, Mait Stanley (Leila Hyams). After confessing her sins to David, she leaves to kill herself. David follows and finds her in a church he has built. He forgives her and they are reconciled.
