George Woods is leading a happy and contented life with his wife and little daughter in the small town of Milford when millionaire Cyrus Morton from New York offers to make him his chauffeur. George accepts and goes to the city where he finds everyone preoccupied with the pursuit of wealth. The fever enters his blood, and upon finding Morton's lost wallet, George takes the money and plunges into the stock market. His investment is successful, and from then on he becomes obsessed with money, forgetting his wife and child in his vain pursuit. Even with the vast wealth he accumulates, however, George finds that he is unhappy. Through the efforts of his wife Mary, George finally realizes that true happiness cannot be found in the accumulation of riches, but lies in simpler pleasures.
