When Daniel discovers that his wife (Stewart) has been unfaithful, he abandons his career and drowns his sorrow in drink. Inga exerts every effort to save him from himself, much to her fiance's strenuous objections. She follows Daniel to an opium den and where he comes to a realization of his error. Robert breaks with Inga over her interest in Daniel. Daniel reclaims his popularity, and it is popularly assumed that he is to marry Inga, at the last minute she surprises everyone and marries Robert.
