Marta is quite content with her sweetheart, Larry Doyle, and her work as a seamstress until society woman Edith Webster offers her a position as her maid. In the luxurious surroundings of Edith's estate, Marta becomes consumed by a desire for wealth and completely forgets Larry. Attracted by Marta's beauty, Nowland Wells, Edith's fiancé, asks her to pose for his statue of "Miss Ambition," and upon its completion, he passionately embraces her. Just then Edith enters, and Marta soon finds herself a social outcast. Still craving wealth, she marries millionaire Dudley Kelland, but he, in a drunken rage over her poor reputation, knocks into the statue and is crushed to death. Larry, now a prominent contractor, refuses to speak to Marta, but after she secretly gives him her entire fortune to ease his financial difficulties, he discovers the identity of his benefactress, and the two lovers are reunited.
