Clara Kimball Young was one of the most popular dramatic actresses of the 1910s, but by 1923 her career was on the wane. Nevertheless, she was still capable of turning out a good film here and there, and it's to her credit that she was able to shine in this Metro feature in spite of thin plot material. Joyce Addison (Young) lives in Madrid with her husband John (Lewis Dayton), an American attaché who neglects her for his work. Joyce's only recreation is her painting. Late one night, while she is out driving, she is robbed by Ramon, a handsome young bandit (Albert Roscoe). Even though he is a thief, Ramon is gentleman enough to see Joyce home, and she decides she would like to paint him. Thus starts a dangerous but exciting relationship. When an old friend sees her at a notorious cafe, Joyce realizes that she really should give up Ramon. She breaks off the friendship, much to Ramon's disappointment. Her husband overhears their conversation and realizes how close he has come to losing her. He resolves to be not only a husband, but a lover as well.
