Housewife June Hillary (Enid Bennett) has become a drudge; her husband Robert (Niles Welch) is a bank clerk who makes 25 dollars a week. A pretty new stenographer at work, Lillian Nicholls (Julia Faye), catches Robert's eye, and he begins to neglect June. When she complains about this, he points out that she's become dowdy. Robert goes to lunch with Lillian; June defiantly goes cafe hopping with some friends and meets Robert's boss, who is charmed by her. But June's victory is short -- she spies Robert with Lillian at another table. So she leaves home with the baby and with Robert's mother (Gertrude Clair) (who has sided with her all along). Finally Roberts sees the error of his ways and makes amends. This was a mediocre vehicle for minor film star Enid Bennett.
