A faithless chorus girl (Frances Nelson) ruins the reputation and marriage of a respectable man (Holbrook Blinn). The vamp then uses her wiles on the man's son (John Hines). Dad pulls himself together long enough to save the day. In so doing, he redeems himself in the eyes of his wife (Grace Henderson). Playwright Owen Davis' Pulitzer Prize was several years in the future when he concocted the melodramatic contrivances of Family Cupboard.
