Nancy Lee (Norma Talmadge) is a Southern belle with a good pedigree whose family, nevertheless, is impoverished. They refuse to allow her to marry the man of her heart, Anthony Weir (Conway Tearle), because, although he has money, his family tree is lacking. Nancy sends Anthony away but then rebelliously marries a New Yorker who throws all his money away on partying. He dies not long after they are wed and leaves her nearly penniless. Anthony's nephew passes himself off to Nancy as a man of wealth, so she accepts the money he offers to loan her. But he has actually embezzled the cash, and Anthony berates Nancy because he believes his nephew stole the money on her behalf. But his nephew reveals that he misrepresented himself to Nancy, and then Anthony finds out that she's no longer a part of her dead husband's fast crowd. So the two are finally reunited.
