Chrissey Desselden (Anita Stewart) is the ward of John Warburton (Charles Richman), who dearly loves her. She promises to marry him, but then becomes fascinated by Robert Neyland (Rudolph Cameron). She only realizes that Neyland is not worthy of her when he drunkenly insults her. She then goes through with the wedding to Warburton, even though she confesses she does not love him. Neyland's life is quickly going downhill, but Chrissey decides she wants him after all and Warburton allows her to go to Reno to procure a divorce. While she is there, Neyland tries to ruin Warburton in the stock market, but he needs funds from Chrissey to complete the deal. She wires him the money, unaware of its purpose. Warburton's friend, Colonel Taylor (Charles Stevenson), lets her know the truth. She keeps the money from reaching Neyland, who is ruined. He commits suicide, and Chrissey decides to be a real wife to Warburton.
