Nearly every silent star had to play a dual role, and this picture was Bessie Barriscale's turn. She's both Muriel Chester, a rich and pampered young lady, and Tina Pierce, a ragged girl of the slums. Muriel's mother (Truly Shattock) orchestrates a marriage between her daughter and Stephen DeKoven (Walter McGrail), who comes from a good, but poor, family. Muriel loves Stephen and is sorely disillusioned when she discovers that he has married her for her money. Stephen runs across Tina and is struck by her resemblance to Muriel, but through their friendship he realizes that he really does love his wife after all. However, he believes that Muriel wants to reunite with her former sweetheart Jim Sargeant (King Baggot), so he decides to go to Europe. But to his surprise, he's joined by Muriel and they set out together for a real honeymoon.
