Sculptor Paul Brehant (Vincent Serrano) meets Denise Fleury (Dolores Cassinelli) in a cabaret. Denise has come there to escape the misery of her slum life. Paul is taken with her purity, and she becomes his model. A great masterpiece is the result -- and also a marriage, much to the chagrin of Paul's former lover, Countess Olga Vosloff (Marie Chambers). She follows after the couple on their honeymoon and gives Denise such a difficult time that she runs off to Paul's friend, Edward Dorin (Franklyn Farnum). But Paul goes after her and finds that she has been true and Dorin has been honorable. Not surprisingly, this picture was directed by Albert Capellani, who did his best work with this type of melodramatic, emotional fare.
