Instead of marrying her childhood sweetheart, Charles Brown (William Hinckley), Cora (Norma Talmadge) has married the more well-heeled Arthur Vincent (Eugene Pallette). But Vincent, the son of a bank president, neglects Cora and their two children in favor of dancer Jane Courtenay (Jewel Carmen). Cora spends a lot of time with her sister and her sister's husband (who happens to be Charles' brother) and wishes she had chosen a better spouse. Meanwhile, Vincent goes from bad to worse -- Jane convinces him to team up with some of her friends and rob his father's bank. The crooks get away with this only temporarily -- eventually they are discovered, and most of them, including Vincent and Jane, are killed in the ensuing chase. So finally Cora is free to wed the man she should have married in the first place.
