Synopsis

Doris Baker's extravagances force her husband Richard to speculate with bank funds. In order to make his scheme foolproof, Richard enlists the aid of the bank director, who demands in return that Doris receive his unpopular wife socially. Doris, however, is primarily concerned with young millionaire Patrick Alliston, and so, when she ignores the woman, the bank director backs out of the deal and leaves Richard penniless. Then, while Doris prepares to accompany Patrick on a trip to Japan, Richard, despondent over his failed marriage and lost fortune, tries to kill himself. When Doris hears about the unsuccessful suicide attempt, she realizes that she is to blame for all of Richard's problems and decides to return to him, after which Richard's financial situation quickly improves.
