In this soap opera-like picture, school teacher Rosalie Allen (Emily Stevens) pays for penniless Lionel Brooks (Earl Schenck) to attend law school. The two profess to have a special love for each other, but predictably Brooks falls for a society girl, Ray Palton (Muriel Ostriche), who also happens to be quite a bit younger than Rosalie. When Brooks tells her they cannot marry, Rosalie has a breakdown, but with the help of old suitor Dr. Paul Duncan (Lionel Adams), she recovers. Rosalie and Dr. Duncan marry and are happy, while Brooks finds that his affair with Ray is only a passing fancy. He tries to reconcile with Rosalie, but she won't have him, and he dies of a broken heart.
