This average romantic melodrama is enhanced by the presence of Constance Binney and Jack Mulhall. After finishing her convent education, Doris Dumond (Binney) joins her mother (Florence Roberts) at a fashionable hotel. Mrs. Dumond is being harassed by gem merchant Ambrose Hammond (Bertram Grassby) because she still owes money for some diamonds she has already sold. She is hoping that Doris will wed wealthy Phillip Carruthers (Mulhall) and put an end to her debts. But a young widow is also after Carruthers and when she sees Doris walking into Hammond's room, she tells him. But Doris is a sleepwalker and doesn't know where she is or what she's doing until she awakens in Hammond's room. Because of this supposed indiscretion, the Dumonds are asked to leave the hotel. But during another night of sleepwalking, Doris saves a little girl who has chased some pigeons out onto a ledge. Finally her actions are understood, and after she and Carruthers reunite, he puts Hammond to route.
