Wealthy widow Violet Logan (Henrietta Crossman) spends her time pursuing social work. On one of her visits to the slums, she brings her friend, Madge, and her friend's misogynist brother, James Semple (Wyndham Standing). They meet Molly Phelan (Stella Razetto) and her fiancé and immediately take a liking to the couple. Later, Violet holds a reception and causes a stir when she invites Molly and some of her friends. As a prank, Molly locks Violet and Semple in a room together, and an attraction springs up. Madge tells Violet that her brother began hating women many years ago, when his wife ran away with their baby girl. The woman was killed in a railway accident, but no one knows what happened to the girl -- that is, except the audience. Predictably, Molly is discovered to be Semple's long-lost daughter, and after an episode in which her lawyer ruins her estate, Violet winds up with Semple.
