Joline Hofer (Viola Dana) is a profligate Montmartre dancer who left her illegitimate child in a convent. Paul Granville (Monte Blue) is an American artist who becomes smitten by the dancer, and uses her for his portraits of great women. When one of Paul's paintings, of the Madonna, appears to result in a miracle, Joline's life is changed forever, as she reforms, reclaims her child, and marries the artist.
