For some unknown reason, Alma Hanlon's character in this drama is named Doris Kenyon, even though there is no relation to the silent film star. Doris, a naïve girl who grew up in the Midwest (called the Middle West in those days), is married to John Allen (Leo Delaney), a lawyer who never takes her out on the town. So she decides to explore New York's glamour herself and gets mixed up with some unsavory types. She becomes involved with the reprobate son of her husband's boss, and Allen divorces her. Doris marries the son, who is cut off from his father's wealth, gambles to make money, and gets tangled up with a vamp (Pamela Vale). A lecherous old man has been interested in Doris this whole time, and her new husband tries to blackmail him. In the ensuing argument, the old man is killed by the husband. Allen winds up defending Doris's husband and wins an acquittal by making a lot of nasty claims about his ex-wife's reputation. Heartbroken, Doris decides to jump off a bridge, but she is saved. Allen discovers the husband's true sleazy nature and he is reunited with Doris.
