In this adaptation of a Robert W. Chambers story, Anna Q. Nilsson plays Sylvia Landis, a society girl who is in love with Stephen Siward (Conrad Nagel). Unfortunately, Siward has a genetic predisposition to alcoholism, which causes him no small trouble. His family fortune is about gone, and he has just been thrown out of the Patroons Club. Because of all this, Sylvia decides to marry the wealthy but unscrupulous Howard Quarrier (Bertram Grassby) instead. But she begins to think that the charmingly drunk Siward is the lesser of two evils, and after her fiancée is killed in a brawl, she and Siward reunite. As often happens in motion pictures, her presence helps to straighten him out.
