Margaret (Frances Nelson) is saved from suicide by an old artist (Fuller Mellish). When he dies and his effects are auctioned off, younger artists make snide remarks about his work, but Margaret fiercely defends it. This impresses Jean Duhanel (John Davidson), and he takes her home with him. Although he is already married, he gives her a ring. When Mrs. Duhanel (Sally Crute) comes back and Margaret discovers the truth, she leaves Jean. Eventually she meets up with an author, Austin Bland (Richard Tucker), and after she tells him of her past (without naming names), they marry. Bland is working on a book called "The Power of Decision" and he wants Margaret to pose for the illustrations. The only problem is that the illustrator turns out to be Jean Duhanel. Duhanel does his best to win her back, and Margaret is wracked with indecision. But in the end, she decides to remain loyal to her husband
