Trading love for financial security and a chance to save her father from ruin, Jane Wilton breaks her engagement with her sweetheart Herbert Temple in order to marry the wealthy John Harwood. After she and John have a son, however, Jane goes back to her former sweetheart who is now engaged to Hope Galt. During a dinner party, a Harwood servant, an idiot, overhears Jane speculating with Herbert about what they would do if she suddenly became a widow. That night, John is wounded by a gunshot and Herbert is arrested on circumstantial evidence. Aware of his wife's persistent love for Herbert, John eagerly supports the police's accusations, ignoring Jane's distraught protestations. Finally, John, moved by his son's great need for his mother's love, unexpectedly announces in court that his attacker was the idiot, not Herbert. Vindicated, Herbert happily reunites with Hope. Still in love with his wife and determined that his son shall have a mother, John is reconciled with Jane, who welcomes the chance to start her marriage over again.
