Seafarer/novelist Leonard Fayne (Thomas Meighan) takes The Easy Road when he weds wealthy Isabel Grace (Gladys George). Once an ambitious workhorse, Fayne degenerates into a slothful lounge lizard and drunkard. Despairing over his fall from grace, Fayne gets a new lease on life by rescuing suicidal Ella Klotz (Lila Lee) and encouraging her to persevere. When wife Isabel returns from a desultory affair, she finds that her husband is a "new man"--one worthy of her unconditional love. Billed third in The Easy Road is Grace Goodall, who spent the rest of her career playing society dowagers in two-reel comedies.
