It was written by Francis de Croisset, Fred de Gresac, Cosmo Gordon Lennox and Hector Turnbull. The origin of the work was de Croisset, who wrote the French play La Passerelle in 1902, and was soon adapted to English by Lennox.
The film depicts a young woman (Fannie Ward) who agrees to a sham wedding with Lord Riginald Belsize (Jack Dean) because his inheritance prohibits him from marrying his girlfriend who is an actress. Belsize is convinced if he marries someone else and hires that woman to be his "wife" he can hide his relationship with his girlfriend. Eventually the young woman and the Lord fall in love even though that wasn't the original intention of either of them and she reveals that his girlfriend is a dangerous woman.
