As described in a film magazine,[4] Geraldine Seagrave (Ferguson), addicted to the drinking habit, becomes intoxicated the night of her debut and later, because of this condition, refuses the love of Duane Mallett (Hamilton). Jack Dysart (Kent), eager to recuperate his fallen fortunes, endeavors to win Geraldine but she, after learning that Duane's sister Sylvia (McCoy) loves Jack, cleverly arranges it so that Sylvia and Jack become engaged and then married. Duane, after finally persuades Geraldine to become engaged to him, comes to believe that she has been false and leaves a note stating that he will never return. The craving for alcohol almost overwhelms Geraldine but she fights it off, and when Duane learns the true state of affairs he returns and Duane and Geraldine are reunited.
