Jack Spencer becomes so absorbed in his business affairs that he neglects his wife Eileen, who, out of boredom and loneliness, accepts the attentions of novelist Carter Ballantyne. On the night that she is to elope with Carter, however, Eileen learns that Jack has lost both his money and his eyesight, so she dismisses her suitor and promises to raise the money for her husband's operation. With her friend, Dolly Page, Eileen cheats at cards and soon amasses a fortune, but while Jack is in France for his treatment, Carter appears and threatens to expose her unless she submits to him. Intending merely to reason with Carter, Eileen gives him a key to her apartment, but Jack returns home unexpectedly and finds him there. At her birthday dinner, Eileen, in anticipation of Carter's plan to expose her publicly, confesses her guilt to all present, whereupon her husband and her friends forgive her.
