A young woman, captivated by the handsome presence and engaging manners of a French artist is ready to take him for her husband, when a call of art and business takes him to Paris. Offended by his willingness to leave her, the young woman marries another suitor, an American, whom she does not love but who is very much in love with her. Later her newly-made husband is also called to the French capital. The artist and his former admirer meet in the latter's studio. While posing in the studio in a Carmen costume the artist attempts to take liberties with her. She resents them and begins to recognize the true character of the man. She now turns to her husband, whose open and manly ways she finds contrast very favorably with those of the unprincipled artist. The husband, at first prone to resent her long indifference to him, yields to the entreaties of his wife, and as the new day is born the dawn of their own lives begins.
