As described in a film magazine, Anitra (Clifford), who has come to believe that Ralph (Coxen), the soldier she loves, will never return from abroad, yields to the plea of John (Robson), a man many years her senior, and goes to live with him in the city. In time he tires of her and dismisses her with a cash settlement. She resolves to aid the poorer children of the city from being despoiled by forcing the wealthy to pay for them. As the Flame, she captivates a wealthy man-about-town and uses the money she obtains from him to found a hospital for the poor and a gambling house for the rich, using the proceeds from the latter support the former. The return of her sweetheart from overseas influences her to a new course. After setting up an endowment to pay for the hospital, she works and manages to get her sweetheart elected mayor on a reform ticket, after which she closes her gambling house along with other evil institutions in the city. Then she discovers that Ralph's father is John, the man who brought about her ruin, and her happiness seems wrecked. However, it turns out that he is only Ralph's foster-father, and after his death she finds happiness in marriage with Ralph.
