Neglected by shallow husband Dick (William Collier Jr.), young bride Paula Wayne (Patsy Ruth Miller) seeks male companionship outside the marital nest. She soon finds it in the form of mature lover Frank Gordon (Warner Baxter). Upon learning of his wife's infidelity, Dick attempts suicide, whereupon the guilt-stricken Paula goes back to him. Ultimately, however, Paula realizes that she can't go on living a lie, and returns to Frank. D.W. Griffith veteran Claire McDowell is seen as Paula's mother, while black comedian Stepin Fetchit provides comedy relief as a lazy porter.
