As described in a film magazine, Edith Frome (Stevens) finds it impossible to live with her husband Arthur (L'Estrange), who overindulges in liquor, and finally leaves him. After a separation of three years, she returns. Each evening she goes out and returns late, which arouses the suspicion of her husband. He has his secretary follow her and learns that she visits a child. Because of her friendliness with Dr. David Brett (Phillips), Arthur suspects the worst and institutes divorce proceedings. Edith tells him the truth concerning the child and Arthur, realizing his folly with his debauches, swears off liquor and they are reunited.
