Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Architect Frank Manners (Holmes E. Herbert) is married to Diana, a willful and frivolous woman (Mary MacLaren). She falls in love with Ogden Fenn (Norman Kerry), and they run off together, taking her little daughter, Tam (Rita Rogan), with them. Manners is infuriated and sets out to shoot them, but he is stopped by Mrs. Hastings, a family friend who has grown to love him herself (Dorothy Bernard). She convinces him to put aside his wrath and think of Tam. Meanwhile, Mr. Hastings (Joseph Smiley) has come to realize that his wife loves Manners and sees all the misery that Fenn is causing. He goes to the bungalow where Fenn and Diana are staying, and forces Fenn into the car with him. He drives the car at breakneck speed, killing them both. Mrs. Hastings brings the wayward Diana and her husband back together.
