Directed by former serial ace Charles Hutchison and starring Hutchison's wife Edith Thornton, this minor melodrama features a girl who marries twice: once out of love and once to help her guardian (Thomas Ricketts) out of some financial difficulties. To escape this untenable situation, she attempts to make the husband she loves (Earle Williams) believe she is a harlot. Fortunately, the husband she doesn't love (Charles Cruz) is conveniently killed by a jealous rival and the story ends on a happy note. Leading man Earle Williams, once a top Vitagraph star, was experiencing a career slump from which he would never recover when he appeared in this film.
