Wealthy Babette Corbin has everything but her husband's love. When by chance she sees in a magazine a picture of a handsome artist, George Cameron, she is determined to win his love. Babette and Florence, her husband's niece, then spend their summer at a hotel near Cameron's country home; and Babette, with flattery and wealth, soon wins his affection. Complications arise when both Florence and Joy, a young girl pursued by the village pastor, are also captivated by Cameron. Babette's husband finds out about the affair and is annoyed by the thought of the notoriety it may bring him. When Florence is rejected by Cameron, she drowns herself. Babette realizes the baneful effect her behavior has on others, and Cameron--also affected by the tragedy--settles down with Joy.
