Clara Kimball Young (as directed by her then-husband, Harry Garson) suffers for her past indiscretions in this drama. Although Vera Stanford (Young) truly loves her husband, Jack (J. Frank Glendon), she's still haunted by a liaison from long ago -- at a masquerade party, she succumbed to a moment of weakness with her escort, Herbert Brooks (Bertram Grassby). Since then Brooks has married a fat older woman, Grace (Gerard Alexander) -- who also has a lot of money. While vacationing at Bar Harbor, Vera and her husband run into Brooks and his wife. Vera's guilt eats away at her and she finally confesses her one-night stand to Jack, without revealing who the man was. Stanford assumes that it is Hugh Graham (Jack Pratt), an artist friend of Vera's and her pal, Isabel Dane (Kathlyn Williams). Stanford's behavior becomes so petty and mean that the couple come close to divorce, but by the end they have reconciled.
