In this romance, an con-artist leaves an unsuccessful carnival gig to become a successful phony psychic. He is assisted by two others. He then marries a woman who believes he really does have 'second sight.' When the truth is at last revealed, he decides to become an honest door-to-door salesman. When this doesn't pan out, he teams up with his old partner and hatches a plot to mess with society folk by letting them know when their spouses are straying. Unfortunately, it backfires and someone is killed causing the con man to go to prison. Fortunately, his wife promises to wait for him.
