This implausible drama was offered on a states' rights basis. Molly Fairfax (Mollie King) marries James Brunton (Holmes Herbert), but soon she believes he is seeing another woman. This "other woman" is actually Helen Warren, Brunton's sister-in-law, who he is supporting (Ethel Grey Terry). Molly, however, doesn't wait for an explanation and she leaves her husband. Brunton is heartbroken and he goes in search of Molly. While he is looking for her, he is injured in an automobile wreck and temporarily blinded. The house he is taken to just happens to be the very same residence where his wife is staying. She nurses him back to health without him realizing her identity (his not recognizing her voice could only happen in a silent film). Eventually he gets his sight back and finds Molly is right there with him. Helen shows up and explains everything, so Brunton and Molly are reconciled.
