In this early sound drama, an ex-socialite is forced to get a job after hard times cause her to lose her fortune. In her new job she runs into many of her old pals, including her ex-boyfriend who is currently married. Later his wife is murdered and he begins to woo the girl. Though she secretly loves him, she rejects him and he marries another. She rejected him so she could testify on his behalf after he is accused of killing his first wife as she and he had been together when the tragedy occurred.
