This domestic drama was based on a stage play by Owen Davis. Jane Cornwall, a wealthy heiress secretly uses her fortune to help her sweetheart, James Van Clinton, perfect his invention. After the device succeeds, Jane and Van Clinton wed and begin a family. Van Clinton becomes bored and falls prey to the charms of Helen Newhall (Margaret Livingston, the bad girl from SUNRISE). Once he has learned a bit of humility, Jane and his young daughter return.
