Alice Brady plays a farm girl who marries the son of her next-door neighbor. Her dreams of a gay social whirl are shattered when her husband takes a job as a railway station agent in a lonely prairie outpost. Desperate for companionship, she begins an affair with the railroad president's son, unaware at first that her lover is likewise married. Leaving her husband, Brady heads to Chicago, hoping that her new sweetheart will find her a job. He does, but only so he can keep her "in reserve" whenever his wife is out of town. Upon discovering that her protector is a philanderer, Brady tries to escape his clutches, but he refuses to let her go. The heroine is rescued by the unexpected appearance of her own husband, who thoroughly trounces the lover and forgives his wife all past indiscretions.
