This moralistic domestic drama uses a flapper as the main character in a weak attempt to appear "modern" (at least in 1922 terms). Peggy Kendricks (Faire Binney) is the flapper in question who toys with men's hearts. She doesn't seem to care who she hurts, even her own sister, Kate (Florence Billings). She makes Kate's husband, Bartley Claybourne (Huntley Gordon), fall in love with her. This irresponsible fling causes the couple to divorce. Claybourne has been completely taken in by Peggy and is ready to marry her, but instead she elopes with the frivolous Ralph Demarest (Joseph Striker). Eventually Peggy wakes up to what she's doing to those around her and she helps Kate reconcile with her husband. The elder Demarest (J. Barney Sherry) has his own doubts about Peggy, but when he realizes she really does love Ralph, he welcomes her into his family.
