Rejected by her parents, the wayward Juliette La Monde (Kitty Gordon) becomes a musical comedy actress and is courted by Morgan Grant (Frederick Truesdell). Grant is married, but no matter; he leaves his wife (Pinna Nesbit) to be with Juliette. After the death of her parents, Juliette takes care of her sister, Francine (played as a girl by Madge Evans and as a young woman by Lillian Cook). Grant has tired of Juliette and now pursues Francine. Even though Juliette has tried to keep her sister on the straight and narrow, Francine is not adverse to Grant's attention. Juliette tries to talk to Grant, but it grows into an argument in which a gun is drawn. In the struggle, Grant is mortally wounded but he exonerates Juliette before he dies. Francine winds up with another man, Philip Stewart (William Sherwood), while Juliette becomes a Red Cross nurse in Europe, and dies in battle.
