Even though the plot to this World Film programmer was slight, the cast included some of the studio's most well-known names. After the death of her grandfather (Captain Charles), Helene (June Elvidge), a singer, finds work as a model at a studio belonging to four artists -- Jeffrey Darrel (Montagu Love), Ned Lorrimer (Carlyle Blackwell), Dick Turner (John Bowers) and Stanley Sargent (George MacQuarrie). Naturally all the artists fall in love with her, but Ned stirs things up with his intense jealously. Because the studio is no longer a happy place to be, Helene quits and heads for a career on the stage. She works her way up to stardom, while three of the painters get their pictures accepted at an exhibition. Jeffrey is the one exception, since he refused to sell out and become commercial. The three successful artists ask Helene to help them celebrate, but she turns them down in favor of Jeffrey.
