This fluffy picture was probably not too taxing on the talents of its formidable star, Alice Brady. By the time it was released, Brady was off performing in Forever After on Broadway. Dazie Mellows, otherwise known as "Redhead" (Brady), works as a dancer in a cabaret. Matt Thurlow, a wealthy but not particularly ambitious young man (Conrad Nagel), is at the cabaret with a group of his friends. They are all getting drunk and they invite Dazie to sit down with them. One of the crowd, Roland Gard (Robert Schable), is a justice of the peace, and he marries Thurlow and Dazie. They wake up to the reality of what they've done the next morning. She wants to make it work, while he insists he doesn't love her. He goes to work to support her, but shows no real enthusiasm towards the marriage, even after her parents (Charles Eldridge and May Brettone) pay the couple a pleasant visit. Dazie does everything she can to prove her worth to Thurlow but he only learns to appreciate her when she inadvertently makes him jealous.
