Bessie Barriscale does her usual good-but-neglected wife turn in this drama, her first for Robertson-Cole. Madge Graham (Barriscale) saves Robert Knight (Forrest Stanley), a young musician, from sucide, and they marry and having a couple of children (Stanton Williams and Mary Jane Irving). But their Greenwich Village happiness turns to boredom for Robert, and he becomes enmeshed with a former sweetheart (Dorothy Cummings) who has married into money. The wayward pair are convinced that they are soul mates, and their spouses don't understand them. But when Robert is in danger of losing the use of his hands, it is Madge who comes to his rescue, not his supposed soul mate.
