A pair of con artists, Gorgone (Genevieve Hamper) and Peppo (Stuart Holmes) wreak havoc in the life of Count de Mornay (Robert B. Mantell). The scammers have entered society by obtaining a 20 million franc inheritance that doesn't belong to them, and Peppo discovers that the Count's wife (Genevieve Blinn) is secretly visiting a gambler. The gambler, it turns out, is the Countess' illegitimate brother, and he is blackmailing her. But when Peppo tells the Count about the meetings, he assumes that his wife is having an affair and rushes over to her apartment. He shoots the gambler and divorces his wife so that he can marry Gorgone. But the lover of the Count's daughter uncovers the whole scheme, and the Count and Countess are reunited.
