Blake Waring (E.H. Sothern) believes money can buy anything, including a wife. He virtually purchases Lelia Bard (Peggy Hyland) from her bankrupt father (Charles Kent). But Waring knows little about love and how to keep a wife happy, so Lelia leaves him. She rustles up enough money to buy herself back from Waring then retreats to a cabin in the woods. He goes after her and arrives just in time to save her from a fire. They reunite, this time for love, not money. This was Sothern's screen debut; he was well-known and respected as a serious stage actor. But he was miscast in this picture, being too old, a bit too heavy, and too Shakespearean for this modern story.
