An actress (Ethel Barrymore) has three suitors, Ross, a chemist (H. Cooper Cliffe), the wealthy Strong (Percy Standing), and Campbell, a poor but up-and-coming district attorney (Mahlon Hamilton). Campbell marries her, and while Strong remains her friend, Ross angrily decides to get revenge on his rival. He sends Campbell a letter which contains a deadly poison. Strong, however, opens it up at Campbell's innocent request and he becomes the victim instead. Because of circumstantial evidence -- Campbell was known to be jealous of his wife's friendship with Strong -- the DA is tried and convicted of the crime. But his wife knows something is fishy, and through her investigation, Ross is discovered to be the murderer.
