What would normally have been a standard society drama is brightened up by good direction courtesy of Robert Z. Leonard, and by Theodore Kosloff, who plays Time dressed as a clown, and who comments on the events of the passing years. Nora Dakon (Mae Busch) leaves her husband and runs off with Larry Brundage (Lew Cody in his standard role), who has seduced her. Nora's husband dies and Brundage leaves her. Years pass and Nora becomes a renowned opera singer while her daughter, Ruth (Gertrude Olmstead), has grown up into a beautiful young woman. Brundage comes sniffing around again and decides he wants to get his hands on Ruth. In spite of Nora's attempts to stop him, he almost gets to marry Ruth. But finally, Nora puts herself and Brundage in a compromising situation, just so Ruth can discover them. Now that she finally understands what kind of man Brundage is, Ruth returns to her nice young suitor, Tom Cautley (Creighton Hale).
