When Philippa (Mary Thurman) fails to impress the man of her dreams Norman (Edmund Lowe), she conspires to break his heart in this romantic melodrama. After Norman marries Madaline (Florence Dixon), Philippa tells him his father-in-law is the burglar who murdered his mother. Madaline's mother (Edna May Oliver) reveals that it was her first husband who is the killer and that Madaline is no relation to the scoundrel. Arthur Hausman and Tyrone Power co-star in this suspenseful story of a woman scorned and her evil plans for vengeance.
