Daughter of old Dr. Nesbit and the belle of the younger social set in the town of Harvey, Laura Nesbit, is planning to marry Grant Adams, the editor of the local paper, until Laura, to arouse her beau's jealousy, flirts with Tom VanDorn, a rising but unethical lawyer. A saddened Grant is drawn into an affair with Margaret Muller, the town siren, with whom he has an illegitimate son. On the rebound, Laura marries VanDorn and Margaret weds attorney Henry Fenn. History repeats itself when Laura's husband becomes infatuated with Margaret, thus causing both marriages to break apart. Meanwhile, Grant has given up his newspaper to become a foreman in the mines. After he is injured in an explosion, Grant is taken to the Nesbit home and under Laura's care, his health is restored. When, during a strike at the mines, Grant's little son is shot and killed, he becomes so overwrought with grief that he confesses the child's parentage to Laura, who forgives his past and they begin a new life together.
