A good cast was wasted in this poor silent melodrama about a young wastrel, Frank Clayton (Gaston Glass), who engages a fake spiritualist in an attempt to trick his estranged father (Charles Hill Mailes) into changing his will. Hired by Hadrian (Warner Oland) to impersonates the young man's mother in the seance, Rita Martin (Jacqueline Logan) instead falls in love with Frank's upstanding step-brother, Bob (Charles Delaney), and, in order to protect Bob's interests, exposes the spiritualist as the faker that he is. Frank is disgraced, Bob is reinstated in his step-father's will, and Rita is forgiven her past indiscretions.
