Mason Forbes (Frank Mills) seduces schoolgirl Claire Wilson (Gail Kane) and brings her to Broadway. But eventually he tosses her aside and instead marries the frivolous Grace Hughes (Gerda Holmes). Claire, in turn, marries Mason's younger brother Harold (Edward Langford). Mason's marriage is a failure, while Claire and Harold happily have a child. Claire, however, is still out for revenge, and entices Mason into falling for her again. He begs her to run away with him, but she stays with her husband. In a fit of anger, Mason reveals Claire's past to Harold, but when Harold hears his wife's version of the story, he takes her in his arms and tosses his brother out the door. The upbeat ending was unusual for this era, as most of Middle America in the 'teens would have preferred to see someone like Claire ostracized.
