Young country nurse Helen Armes (Dorothy Dalton) arrives in New York City to visit a friend and her husband. They go out for a New Year's Eve celebration, accompanied by a young profligate. When they arrive at the cabaret, the wastrel's brother is there, and seeing how innocent Helen is, insists that she is taken home. But at the hotel, this bad seed tries, unsuccessfully, to force himself on her then later tells his brother the girl was the one who made a pass. The brothers quarrel and the good one is temporarily blinded. His nurse is none other than Helen, but she uses a different name so he won't know that the woman caring for him was the type to go cabaret-hopping. When she discovers the bad brother trying to steal from her patient, she convinces him to do something decent and enlist. As a result, he goes to France, where he is killed in action. The good brother falls in love with Helen and proposes marriage, but when he regains his sight he finds out who she really is and leaves her because he believes his dead brother's story. But the brother's ghost visits him and clears her name, so they are reunited.
