Synopsis by Janiss Garza

When Pete Milholland (Owen Moore) goes on a drunken spree, his fiancee, Alice Gardner (Eva Francis), gives him back his ring. Still woozy, he stumbles out of his home to leave for Europe and winds up at Coney Island. There he meets a pretty dancer, Tessie (Irene Fenwick), and decides she can heal his broken heart. Tessie and her father view him dubiously, and her sweetheart, Jan the boatman (William Bailey), is furious. But Pete insists on bringing Tessie and her father into his social circle. It begins to dawn on Pete that Tessie does not fit in, and Tessie realizes that he still cares for Alice. Alice and Pete finally make up and as they embrace, Tessie walks in on them. She hands back the ring and, with more than a little relief, returns to Coney Island, and to Jan.
