Artists John Drene (Marc MacDermott) and Jack Graylock (Robert Walker) have been friends for 20 years. Drene gets married, but he neglects his wife (Edith Speare) for his work and she and Graylock become involved. She leaves her husband and Graylock follows her to Nice. Drene, meanwhile, goes to Paris where he meets up with Cecelia (Alice Joyce), a flower girl he had once befriended. Graylock asks her to pose for him, and she meets Mrs. Drene, but assumes she is married to Graylock. The two men then run into each other at a carnival. Mrs. Drene is there too, wearing a mask, but her gown catches on fire and she is burned to death. Cecelia later sees a picture of the woman and tells Drene she knew her as Mrs. Graylock. Drene realizes his friend has betrayed him and virtually forces him to shoot himself. Grayson recovers, but he is ostracized from his circle. Drene and Cecelia, meanwhile, get married. This picture was adapted from a Robert W. Chambers novel, Between Friends.
