Alma Dean and her husband, Anthony, rent a house from a trio of crooks who have the intention of stealing the wife's jewels. The female member of the group remains in the guise of a housekeeper, and gradually she and Anthony become very fond of each other. In the meantime, Alma is playing around with a poor writer, and Anthony, miserable, leaves her, accidentally carrying away a flask containing poison. Previously, the writer dared Alma to commit suicide, but when she sees her husband take this very flask, she says nothing. The "housekeeper," learning of the state of affairs, chases after Anthony and wrecks her car at the garage where he is buying gasoline. The situation is satisfactorily resolved.
