Elsie Ferguson, one of the lesser stars of the day, manages to overcome the poor direction, photography and plot of this film. In it she plays a wealthy young girl whose family falls on hard times when her father dies. She tries to find work but is unable to support herself. To keep from starving, she marries a rich man (Wyndham Standing). However, she finds her attention wandering towards Kenneth Gordon (Lionel Atwill). Intrigued by his slick style, she considers running off with him, but in the end she takes a new look at her husband and discovers that she does love him after all.
