Mrs. Renov, the wife of a theatrical producer, develops a fondness towards Bob and gets him a part in one of her husband's shows; Renov discovers his wife's infidelity and quickly fires Bob. Renov meets Babs and gives her a part in his show. Fred, Babs's college sweetheart, comes to New York to look for her, and Mrs. Renov turns her attentions to him, feigning interest in one of his plays. Renov hires Fred as his assistant and, suspecting him of philandering, frames him on a forgery charge. Babs goes to Renov to plead for Fred's release, and he attacks her. Bob clubs Renov with an iron bar and, attempting to escape, falls to his death. Unnerved by city life, Babs returns to the small college town where Fred is a professor.
