This comedy-drama, based on a popular play of the era by George Broadhurst, is the classic story of a poor girl who marries a millionaire. But the millionaire, Robert Stafford (Montagu Love), is an alcoholic who, after one of his nights of heavy drinking, asserts that he "bought and paid for" Virginia, his wife (Alice Brady). Virginia finds his inebriation unbearable and decides her comfortable life isn't worth the suffering, so she leaves him. It takes a lot of effort on the part of Virginia's brother-in-law James (Frank Conlan) and his wife Fanny (Josephine Drake) to get the couple back together.
