As described in a film magazine,[6] the Berkeleys are prominent in New York City society, with James (Holmes), a man who bluffs at wealth, using the famed beauty of his new wife Lois (Swanson) to further his business interests in obtaining loans and other favors from capitalists. In the sudden acquired wealth of his old college chum Allan Franklyn (Wayne), who has been absent in Mexico for some years, James sees his big opportunity. The three go to Mexico where the intended catch Allan demonstrates his love for Lois. When she learns that James has been using her solely for his own financial gain, she openly declares her affection for Allan. A bandit (Burton) raids the hacienda and pursues Lois. Her husband is killed while escaping and Allan, the man she loves, carries her across the Rio Grande river to safety and the prospect of happiness.
