Winsome Shirley Mason stars in this routine Fox melodrama. The naïve Grace Whitney (Mason) attends a wild party being held by Monte Brandster (Freeman Wood). Thelma Delores, a gold digger (Hazel Howell), murders Brandster in a fit of jealousy, but circumstantial evidence points to Grace. She is acquitted through the testimony of Herbert Wyckoff (John Roche), who is attracted to her. Grace starts a new life in another city as Enid Day and becomes governess for the Hollisters. Wyckoff visits with his sister (Clarissa Selwynne), and admits that he still has doubts about Grace's innocence. Eventually, however, he overcomes his suspicions and falls in love with her. Mrs. Hollister is having an affair with Dick Thorbeck (Joseph Striker). The illicit lovers are in danger of being caught, and for the sake of the baby, Grace quickly takes Mrs. Hollister's place. She is denounced and her identity as the accused murderer is uncovered, but Wyckoff, whose faith in her is now unshakable, proposes to her.
