A drunken Captain Pollock attempts to seduce Lady Una at a reception celebrating the birth of her son Abington. Innocent but caught in a compromising position, Lady Una is chastized by her husband, Lord Cyril. Curley Lushington, a family friend and devotee of Lady Una, tries to reconcile the two men by soliciting an apology from Pollock, but Cyril forcefully rejects the captain. Furious at the spurn, Pollock plots to implicate Lady Una further by deviously luring her to an inn where she believes her husband lays injured. Once more Lord Cyril discovers them in an apparent embrace and demands a separation, taking Abington with him. Five years later, hearing news of Pollock's impending death, Curley procures a confession exonerating Lady Una and schemes to reunite her with Lord Cyril. The plan goes awry, and Lady Una kidnaps Abington, but thanks to the continued efforts of both their son and Curley, the couple is happily reunited.
