This romance was based on the best-selling novel by Anne Douglas Sedgwick. While serving in the Great War, Owen Bradley (Anthony Jowett) tells his fiancée, Toppie Westmacott (Esther Ralston), that his leave has been canceled so that he can spend time with the seductive Madame Vervier (Alice Joyce). Later he is killed in action, but he has asked his brother, Giles (Neil Hamilton), to take Madame Vervier's daughter, Alix (Mary Brian), to London. Alix is a hit in London society and is soon engaged to marry a viscount. Meanwhile, Giles, who loves Toppie, tries to prevent her from entering a convent. Alix confesses to Toppie that her mother had an affair with Owen. Word gets around that Madame Vervier has had affairs with many men, not just Owen, and her reputation in London diminishes rapidly. The viscount breaks off his engagement with Alix and Toppie still enters the convent. Giles finally realizes that it's Alix he loves and he follows her to France. Although she is being courted by Andre Valenbois (Paul Doucet), Giles still manages to win her.
