Alice Brady manages to make this predictable drama more interesting than it otherwise might have been. Although Rita Charles (Brady) works as a secretary, her real career is as a "tinpanner" -- a young lady who spends her time in search of excitement and the high life. She is involved with the wealthy Harrison Chalvey (Earl Metcalfe), a man-about-town who isn't wholly convinced he wants to spend his life with her. She isn't all that sure about him, either, so when she meets up with her boss' son, T.J. Olverson Jr. (Robert Schable), and settlement worker Doctor Varian (W.P. Carleton Jr.), she pursues romances with both of them. When Chalvey finally does propose marriage, she turns him down. Olverson, it turns out, is already married and Rita just barely avoids being named in the couple's subsequent divorce trial. That leaves Varian and, as was easily guessed from the start, he marries Rita.
