As described in a film magazine,[4] society girl Cynthia Brock (Dalton) is made penniless by the death of her father and about to relinquish her place in her social circle when Fenwick Flint (Herbert), a wealthy bachelor, persuades her in assisting him in breaking up the happiness and marriage of James and Viola Gordon (Stanley and Boone) so that he may marry the lady. In her weak moment she accepts and soon has James at her feet. Then she falls in love with her victim and refuses to stage the final scene of the scheme that will provide the grounds for the divorce. The situation results in her fainting, and afterwards she tells the truth about the whole matter. James permits the divorce by his wife, and Cynthia returns Fenwick's money and goes to work. In due time she and James marry.
