Doria Manners (Adele Farrington), along with a certain Prince Vandloup (Richard Morris), are out to ruin young bank president Mason Van Horton (Emory Johnson). They convince Doria's husband, John (William Canfield), that Van Horton has made a play for her. So the wealthy Manners destroys Van Horton's career. In the end, Manners finds out the truth and orders the vampirish Doria from the house, while Van Horton is reunited with his girl, Beverley Hope (Dorothy Davenport). The picture starts off with an allegory involving Hades which has very little to do with the rest of the picture. Such allegorical turns were often popular in silent films of the 1910s, but even back then they ran the risk of looking preposterous.
