At a fashionable beach resort, Mr. Reynolds is having an affair with Mrs. Lyons-King, whom his daughter Peggy suspects to be an adventuress; Mrs. Reynolds is fascinated with Roger, a boyfriend of another youngster; and Janet, Peggy's sister, is enamored of Clinton Darrow. Mr. Reynolds is about to be persuaded to buy some worthless stock, and Darrow has possession of some indiscreet letters from Janet. Janet enters Darrow's room in a vain effort to retrieve them and, without her knowledge, is seen by Bill and Peggy. Threatened with extortion, Janet plans to kill Darrow but, instead, she accidentally wounds Peggy. Roger, a friend of Peggy's, obtains the letters during a fake robbery, and Peggy is reconciled with Bill.
