Actress Yvonne Leclaire (Fontaine La Rue) has been abused one too many times by her husband, a leading man, and she shoots him dead in his dressing room. Member of the chorus Billy Jordan (Harry Springler) is a witness to the killing, but since he is in love with Yvonne, he keeps quiet. However, Billy's sister, Alma (Fritzi Brunette) is a reporter, and her managing editor Mac (George McDaniels) assigns her the case. When Yvonne accepts a marriage proposal from a wealthy man, Billy angrily goes to the paper and reveals that she killed her husband. Alma is sent to get a confession, and only then does she realize her brother's involvement in the case. The film ties things up neatly (a little too neatly, really) -- the paper gets its story, Yvonne is taken away, and Mac proposes to Alma.
